Secretary Husted Statement on Passing of former Ohio Senate President Bill Harris

COLUMBUSFormer Ohio Senate President Bill Harris died today at the age of 83. The following may be directly attributed to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted:
“Today we mourn the passing of a great Ohioan. Bill Harris was a man of principle and one of the most decent people I have ever known who dedicated much of his life to serving others. Having served alongside Bill during his tenure as Senate President and mine as Speaker of the House, we had a great working relationship focused on getting the job done."

"Losing Bill is a sad day for me, but he was a man of strong faith who is now joined with his beloved wife Kay for eternity. Tina and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Harris family.”
