Letter to Editor

On the Passing of Paul Sarbanes

December 28, 2020

Dear Editor: 

I read with considerable regret the lengthy obituary for Paul Sarbanes in the New York Times. He was a credit not only to the Greek community, but to the nation serving admirably in the U.S. Senate for many years. I remember fondly my children at that time canvassing the immediate neighborhood to vote for Paul Sarbanes, an endeavor which paid off as he won election after election. He was a gentleman, willing to take a bipartisan position on the issues of the day. 

Certainly, he will be missed, but aside from his admirable record, he has left a current imprint on the political scene with his son in the House of Representatives following in his footsteps. He will be remembered as he leaves a legacy both for the Greek community and for his U.S. supporters. 

Incidentally, he never forgot his Greek heritage and was an outspoken supporter of Greece against an aggressive Turkey. 

Very truly yours, 

Nelson Marans 

New York, NY
