Gianaris Shares Statement on the Passing of Senator Paul Sarbanes

NEW YORK – On December 7, New York State Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris issued the following statement upon the passing of Greek-American former Maryland Senator Paul Sarbanes:

“Senator Paul Sarbanes will be sorely missed in our nation and especially within the Greek-American community. He was a true exemplar of honorable public service who stood up to powerful interests – drafting the first article of impeachment against Richard Nixon and tackling corporate power after the fall of Enron. As the son of Greek immigrants, he knew that America is at its best when it is inclusive and welcoming of others. It was a privilege to know Senator Sarbanes and I extend my deepest condolences to Congressman John Sarbanes and the entire Sarbanes family.”
