PA. Gov. Comments on the death of longtime civil liberties advocate

 

HARRISBURG, Pa., -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today expressed regret upon learning of the death of Larry Frankel, former legislative director for the American Civil Liberty Union of Pennsylvania:

 

"Larry Frankel was clearly one of the most effective advocates for civil liberties and justice in Pennsylvania. Larry understood that in the fight to preserve and expand our civil liberties, being civil was as important as being right.

 

"Larry was so respected and trusted by legislators and advocates on both sides of the aisle that he alone was able to build powerful coalitions to protect our freedoms. I could count on Larry for his strategic insight and clever approach to advocacy making him a pleasure to work with and a gentleman that I always wanted on my side. He served the people of Pennsylvania as much as any elected official in the commonwealth."

 

 

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. To find out more about Governor Rendell's initiatives and to sign up for his newsletter, visit www.governor.state.pa.us.
