Sires talks about Kennedy passing
Reaction has begun after the recent death of Sen. Ted Kennedy. The senator died on Tuesday, Aug. 25 at the age of 77 while battling brain cancer. “I am saddened to hear about the death of Senator Ted Kennedy. The American people have lost a great leader and the Kennedy family has lost a beloved patriarch,” said Rep. Albio Sires (D-13th Dist.) in a statement released on Aug. 26. “His leadership on civil rights, health care and education were among his top priorities. He was a champion for all people and believed that everyone should have the chance to realize their potential to the fullest. The senator's fight against discrimination and consideration for the under represented will never be forgotten."
