08/10/2010


Washington, DC – Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar today released the following statement on the passing of Former Senator Ted Stevens:

“My thoughts and prayers are with Senator Stevens’ family and the loved ones of all those killed and injured in the terrible tragedy near Dillingham. Senator Stevens was a friend and colleague. From his courage in World War II, his work for Alaska statehood and his time at the Department of the Interior to his years of leadership in the U.S. Senate, Senator Stevens left behind a lifetime of service. We have lost a dedicated public servant for our country, the United States Senate, and Alaska.”
