I am heartbroken to learn that Virginia has lost a great man in former Democrat Senator Chuck Colgan, who passed away at the age of 90. Chuck was the longest serving member of the State Senate and spent 40 years serving the Commonwealth. He was also a dedicated supporter of Right to Life issues, fiscal restraint and individual freedoms. As President Pro Tempore of the Senate he taught us all to be respectful of others while still holding to our principles. He was the epitome of a humble leader. I will miss my former seatmate and friend. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
