Remembering President George H.W. Bush

WASHINGTON (December 5, 2018) - Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement in remembrance of President Geroge H.W. Bush.

“President George H.W. Bush was a man of great honor, humility, and principle. In death, as in life, he reminds us of the true meaning of service. By exhibiting the virtues of courage, integrity, and decency, President Bush stands as an example that should guide and inspire every American. He was a decorated Navy veteran and one of the finest public servants I have known. 
“Thomas Edison once said, ‘What you are will show in what you do.’ By his life and work, President Bush showed that he was a dedicated family man with extraordinary strength, commitment, and wisdom—a true American leader and statesman.
“On behalf of the Edison Electric Institute and our member electric companies, I extend my deepest condolences to President Bush’s family.”
