John, for the first time in my life, you have disappointed me. We have been friends for a long time. One of your first campaign stops was in my living room in Westerville because I was the President of a large civic association. We met again when I was the State Forms, records, and reprographics administrator of Ohio. We met again on a flight to Washington D.C. when I was going to give some seminars to the Forms Management Association.
I even gave you a copy of a cartoon “Behind Closed Doors” I did featuring you. I have always been a huge supporter of you, and your policies. You have been one of the greatest Governors we have ever had in Ohio. But now it is time to get behind Donald Trump. A President Hillary Clinton is something that our nation can not survive.
How many times have both of us held our noses to vote for a “Moderate” Republican candidate? I count at least 5 times I have. In a previous editorial here on Frying Pan Politics I said that Trump was a lot of things but conservative was not one of them. But do you really want to see Clinton elected? I do not.
I was very sorry that you did not attend the 2016 convention. You needed to be there. But more important, if you can not publically support Trump at least don’t help destroy him.
Regardless I am still a Kasich supporter and will be in your camp.
Your friend, Bill Smith
