Press Release

WASHINGTON, DCCongressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the passing of former Governor Gerald L. Baliles:

“I was saddened to learn of the passing of my friend and our former governor, Gerald Baliles.  As the Commonwealth’s 65th governor, Jerry governed with a calm, yet passionate demeanor that allowed him to secure historic investments in transportation, education and the clean-up of the Chesapeake Bay.  While I was proud to support his initiatives while serving in the Senate of Virginia, I will always fondly remember our service together in the House of Delegates.  Our Commonwealth has lost one of its greatest governors and public servants.  I offer my condolences to his wife Robin, his family and loved ones.”
