STATEMENT OF LITTLE ROCK MAYOR JIM DAILEY UPON LEARNING OF DEATH OF LT. GOV. WINTHROP PAUL ROCKEFELLER

Mayor Jim Dailey is out of state. Upon learning of Lt. Gov. Rockefeller’s death, he issued the following statement:

“Little Rock lost a great friend today with the death of Lt. Governor Winthrop Paul Rockefeller. On behalf of the citizens of Little Rock, I want to express sympathy to Lisenne and the rest of his family.”

“Win was a great leader in the community; he led by example. There are numerous organizations that benefited from his contributions of time and talent. Youth, education, conservation, the arts, and healthcare organizations all were beneficiaries of his generosity and involvement.”

“Though a public official in his later life, Win remained a private man committed to his family. He was more concerned with serving others than being served. This interest in helping people is what ultimately led him to finally enter politics.”

“Since I learned of his diagnosis last July, I have kept him in my prayers. I have also prayed for his family as they supported him. Now, I direct those prayers to support his family in this time--and to thank God for the life of Winthrop Paul Rockefeller and the lessons he taught us.”

“The City of Little Rock and the State of Arkansas are certainly much better because of Winthrop Paul Rockefeller.”
