(Washington, DC)—Washington Legal Foundation (WLF) is profoundly saddened by the passing of our longtime friend Dick Thornburgh, former U.S. Attorney General and two-term Governor of Pennsylvania, who served as Chairman of WLF’s honorary Legal Policy Advisory Board from 1997 to 2015.
WLF President and CEO Connie Larcher released the following statement:
“Dick provided WLF with invaluable support, counsel, and encouragement for nearly 20 years. Although his legacy lives long after him, it is with heavy hearts that we enter the new year in a world without him. He was a dear friend, and we will miss him always.”
