President George H.W. Bush

WHITE PLAINS, NY — December 1, 2018 — “I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of President George H. W. Bush.  President Bush was a true patriot, a man who spent part of his formative years in Greenwich, CT.  He married a woman from Rye, First Lady Barbara, and so their connection to Westchester County was always evident.

“He was our nation’s 41st President, but his public service began long before that.  He served his county in many ways, as Vice President under President Ronald Regan, as CIA Director under President Gerald Ford, Liaison to China, a United Nations Ambassador, a member of the US House of Representatives from Texas and as a young man as a Navy pilot who almost made the ultimate sacrifice during World War II.

“We can all learn something from the life he lived, from his dedication to his Country and his family.  Let us all remember him for the rich life he lived, but above all his decency and humbleness.

“In his honor I have directed all US flags on County property be flown at half-staff.”
