Pennsylvania Governor Rendell Issues Statement on Senator Edward M. Kennedy

HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today issued the following statement on the passing of Senator Kennedy of Massachusetts:

"I was saddened this morning to learn of the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy, one of the true giants of American public life. It marks the end of an era in our nation's politics, and indeed in our nation's history.

"During almost five decades in the United States Senate, Ted Kennedy led the fight for the most vulnerable and least fortunate among us. He valued every person, no matter their station in life, and he worked tirelessly until the very end to make sure that all Americans could live in dignity and peace.

"He knew that the strength of a nation lies in the strength of its people, so he dedicated himself to fighting for all children to receive a good education, for everyone to have access to high-quality health care, and for everyone to have the opportunity for economic progress - in short, that everyone had the chance to share in the American dream.

"The United States has lost one of its greatest statesmen of all time. I will miss him as a friend, and the nation will miss him for the leadership, the guidance and the love that he gave to all of us."

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses.
