Mayor Murray’s Statement on the Passing of Beau Biden

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray issued the following statement regarding the death of Beau Biden, Delaware’s former Attorney General and the son of Vice President Joe Biden:

“I offer my prayers and condolences to Vice President Biden’s family and the people of Delaware. Beau Biden was a dedicated public servant and Iraq war veteran whose loss is felt across America. I admired his strong support for LGBT equality, and that he served the people of Delaware and our nation with honor, integrity and faith. I grieve when any father must outlive a son or daughter, and I pray for healing for the Biden family, and all those who are mourning in the White House and the state of Delaware.”
