I am saddened by today’s passing of Tony Snow, former news commentator, White House Press Secretary, and most importantly a great American. A native Cincinnatian, Tony took on Washington with Midwestern charm, character, class – and humor. His honest critiques of our country’s policies and processes were refreshing and will be widely missed.

As we prepare to celebrate the 4th of July this weekend, I’d like to share with you an excerpt from one of President John Adams’ famous letters to his wife, Abigail, about the holiday. On July 3, 1776, just one day before signing the Declaration of Independence, he wrote:
I am apt to believe that [July 4] will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival.

I am honored to announce that football legend, Lou Holtz, will be visiting Cincinnati this month to help with my re-election effort.
Coach Holtz recruited me to play football at the College of William and Mary in 1970, and I had the privilege of playing under his leadership during my freshman year.

This weekend, millions of Americans will pay tribute to the brave soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who have paid the ultimate price to preserve our freedom. Our nation has been blessed that so many have answered the call of duty and today we take time to honor their sacrifice.
