STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on the passing of President George H.W. Bush

 

“President Bush was a statesman, a leader who understood that Americans should aspire to uplift our common humanity — even in the midst of honest disagreements over ideas. His lifetime of service was defined by qualities too often in short supply in our politics: decency, dignity, civility, patriotism. His devotion to family and country inspired people everywhere, and my thoughts are with everyone who loved and admired him.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
