Former Ohio Governor and U.S. Rep John Gilligan Dies
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Former Ohio Gov. and U.S. Rep. John J. Gilligan, a liberal Democrat who won creation of the state income tax, has died. He was 92.
His death Monday was confirmed by his caregiver, Frank Kennedy.
Gilligan's daughter Kathleen Sebelius, a former Kansas governor, in 2009 became Health and Human Services secretary under President Barack Obama.
President Obama has released the following statement:
Jack Gilligan lived his life in service to his fellow Americans,
especially those in his home state of Ohio and across the United States
who were left out or left behind. During World War II, he earned a
Silver Star for his bravery at Okinawa, and he never stopped serving
his countryas a Congressman, where he helped enact historic
legislation from the Voting Rights Act to Medicare and Medicaid, and
then as governor of Ohio.
In addition to his many other accomplishments, Jack was the father of
four extraordinary children, including our Secretary of Health and
Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius. Kathleen followed in the high
tradition of public service that Jack set, and they became the first
father-daughter team of governors in American history. She always
made her father proud, and Im proud to have her on my team each
and every day. Michelle and I extend our deepest condolences to
Kathleen, the entire Gilligan family, and their many friends.
Gilligan, a teacher, became the state's 62nd governor in 1970, a year in which Republicans suffered from a loan scandal in the state treasurer's office.
He inherited a school funding problem in which 24 districts had closed for lack of operating money and more were expected to follow suit.
Gilligan persuaded legislators to enact the state's first corporate and personal income tax in 1971 to raise money for dealing with those and other government priorities.
