In memory of Tom Foley

Today our state lost a leader who always put the people he represented first. Tom Foley was a man of principle and dignity who never let partisan politics get in the way of doing what was right for his country and his state. His contributions at home and abroad over his nearly 50 year career in public service still resonate today, including at the University of Washington, his alma mater. My thoughts are with his family, in particular his wife Heather, as we mourn the loss of one of the most dedicated public servants our state has ever elected.
