NOTE TO THE EDITOR: Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of the death of former Indiana State Representative Bill Crawford (D-Indianapolis).
STATEHOUSE – “Bill Crawford was a deeply respected colleague in the Indiana House of Representatives. A consummate gentleman and constant advocate for Central Indiana, I had the honor to serve alongside Bill for many years. As a former Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and the longest-serving African-American legislator in our state’s history, Bill leaves behind a sterling legacy of selfless public service. He will be truly missed.”
