Press Release

SCHAUMBURG, IL – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to the passing of former U.S. Senator Adlai Stevenson III:

“It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Senator Stevenson who lived a life committed to public service and dedicated to advancing causes as far-ranging as ending the war in Vietnam, expanding our nation’s investments in scientific research, and raising the ethical standards to which we hold our public officials. Senator Stevenson was not only an inspiration to me through his example but also through the mentorship, kindness, and support he showed me as I began my own life in public service. My thoughts and prayers are with Senator Stevenson’s family and friends today as I join them in honoring and mourning the life of a great son of Illinois.”
