Speaker Chenault Comments on Death of Senator Ted Stevens


Tuesday, August 10, 2010, Kenai, Alaska – Alaska State House Speaker Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, today released the following statement regarding the death of former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens:

“Ted Stevens was a lion of a man who meant more to this state and how we got to where we are today than, I think, many of us will ever really know. I had tremendous respect for the senator, who served us passionately, and well, for four decades. On behalf of the Alaska State House of Representatives I offer our condolences and prayers to the Stevens family and for all those affected by the tragedy in Western Alaska. We are thankful to the good Samaritans, the Coast Guard, the Alaska National Guard, and the Alaska State Troopers for their efforts in assisting in the response and caring for the survivors. Senator Stevens’ devotion to our state will undoubtedly have an impact on not only our generation but for future generations of Alaskans as well. Every community, every Alaskan, is touched every day by the senator’s love and passion for a greater Alaska. He will be missed.”
