Statement by President Obama on the Passing of Tom Foley

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–October 18, 2013.

Today, America has lost a legend of the United States Congress. For thirty years, Tom Foley represented the people of Washington’s 5th district with skill, dedication, and a deep commitment to improving the lives of those he was elected to serve.  Tom’s straightforward approach helped him find common ground with members of both parties, eventually leading to his election as the 57th Speaker of the House. After his career in Congress, Tom served as the U.S. Ambassador to Japan, where his poise and civility helped strengthen our relationship with one of our closest allies. 

Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Tom’s wife, Heather, and the entire Foley family.
