Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid today released the following statement today on the passing of former Nevada Assembly Speaker Joe Dini.
“I am deeply saddened by the loss of my good friend, Joe Dini. A true legislator, he understood that legislation is the art of compromise and as a moderate Democrat, Joe worked with fellow legislators and governors from both sides of the aisle. I can think of no higher praise, than when the late Bill Raggio said Joe had, ‘one of the greatest legislative careers in the state of Nevada,’ and I agree. He devoted his life to public service, and always had every Nevadans’ interests at heart. My thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.”
