Governor's Statement on Death of Governor Carnahan
John Truscott (517) 335-6397
"I was shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of
Governor Mel Carnahan and his son, Roger.
"I served with Governor Carnahan for nearly eight years, having
sat next him at National
Governors' Association (NGA) meetings. I came to know him as a man
with a deep commitment to public service.
"All governors fondly remember the annual NGA meeting that
Governor Carnahan hosted in St. Louis.
"Governor Carnahan will be missed by all of us who served with
him. This morning, we all feel a great sense of loss.
"Michelle and I wish to convey our deepest condolences and prayers
to Jean Carnahan and the Carnahan family."
