From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)

This eventful week of presidential primary events on Long Island started off with John Kasich, Republican candidate and Governor of Ohio, hosting a Town Hall on Monday at Hofstra University.

Maureen O’Brien, of Bethpage, brought a colorful, handmade “GO JOHNNY GO” poster, which I spotted while sitting on the floor near her front row seat.
When I gave Ms. O’Brien a heads up I might need to grab the back of her chair later on when I stood up, she offered to switch places with me. I thanked her for such generosity, but ended up staying on the floor.
Since I had my sweatshirt under my knees when kneeling, I could comfortably focus on capturing the governor speaking – without notes – to the audience, which frequently applauded and cheered.
