House Minority Leader Issues Statement on the Passing of House Speaker Michael E. Busch
Yesterday, House Minority Leader Nic Kipke released the following statement regarding the passing of Speaker of the House Michael E. Busch:
“It is sad and surreal that Speaker Busch is gone. He was a good man and a dear friend. The coach-like style that he brought to his Speakership lifted all of us up and made us better people and better legislators. He liked to win but what he wanted most was to see everyone ‘play the game’ fairly, with honor and dignity.
My entire family and I wish his loved ones heartfelt condolences and we thank you for sharing him with us for all of these years. He will be sorely missed.”
