Verbatim: Holcomb Statement on Retirement of Senate President David Long

The following was released on Tues. Feb. 13, 2018 by the Office of Governor Holcomb: 

INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement today regarding Senate President Pro Tem David Long’s announcement that he will retire in November:

“For more than two decades, David has been a steady hand in the Statehouse no matter the subject or challenge. He is a humble servant leader, and our state owes many great accomplishments to him—though he would never say so. I will miss his cool head and the continuity he brought to the General Assembly. I wish him a long and happy retirement, but I know he’ll remain a mentor, advisor and trusted friend to many—including me.”
