Arizona Democratic Party Chair: Ed Pastor was “one of our own”

PHOENIX — Arizona Democratic Party Chair Felecia Rotellini released the following statement on former Congressman Ed Pastor’s passing:

“All of Arizona mourns the loss of a dedicated husband and father and a true man of honor in former Congressman Ed Pastor. It was a privilege to know Ed and to call him one of our own. His leadership style was about working in service for Arizona and never caring about who got the credit. As a leader, he brought massive infrastructure investment to the Valley because he knew the positive impact it would have on our economy and the quality of life for all Arizonans. Ed’s contribution to his community and his state is a legacy for generations to come and will truly be missed. We send our heartfelt love, thoughts, and prayers to the Pastor family.”
