Friday, August 12, 2022

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Rep. Julie Sandstede (DFL – Hibbing) issued the following statement regarding the passing of Sen. David Tomassoni:

“My heart is broken today. To the very end, David was a fighter, an advocate, and a champion for the Iron Range, as well as working people, students, and families across the entire state. Facing an unthinkably difficult situation personally, he persevered to deliver a historic investment in ALS, which has the potential to save lives in the future. Having the opportunity to work closely with him was a joy and an honor. I will miss him dearly, and I share my deepest sympathies with his family.”
