Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement on the passing of her colleague, the former California Senate Republican leader Dave Cogdill.

“I’m saddened to hear of the passing of my former colleague, Dave Cogdill. Dave was always willing to put the greater good ahead of immediate interests and party. His selfless leadership and dedication served as an inspiration for not only those who served with him, but also those who served after him, hoping to reach across the aisle and achieve tangible change, just as Dave did. His courageous service during the worst economic crisis our state had ever seen earned him the Profile in Courage Award and the state of California is better for his service. It was an honor to serve by Dave’s side. He will be missed.”
