Rep. Lislegard statement on Sen. David Tomassoni’s passing

Friday, August 12, 2022

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Rep. Dave Lislegard (DFL – Aurora) issued the following statement after the death of Sen. David Tomassoni.

“We lost a champion, and I lost my dear friend and mentor. David taught me so much about the value of relationships, and how to work with people to get things done at the Capitol. Despite the adversity and the outlook he faced over the last year, he remained there for the people of the Iron Range every minute of every day. My heart goes out to his entire family – who were along David's side for his journey as he battled ALS – for their heartbreaking loss. 

“Thank you, David, for being you, and for giving us so much.”
