(Washington, D.C.) – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement on the passing of former Washington state governor Albert D. Rosellini.
“I am deeply saddened by the loss of former governor Albert Rosellini, a leader who dedicated his career to public service and Washington state.
“Governor Rosellini didn’t just serve the public on his own, he also gave so much of his time and energy to support others who wanted to get involved in government. He was one of the first ones in my corner when I got into politics, and I know there are countless others across our state who benefitted from his advice and support over the years.
“So the legacy Governor Rosellini leaves is not just in the state that he played such an important role in building, but it is also preserved through the men and women he boosted and supported who will continue building on his great work for Washington state families and communities.”
