Mike Collier Remembers Mark White

I'm saddened to learn of the passing of Governor Mark White today.

Governor White became a mentor and coach when I first launched my campaign for Comptroller, and I'm proud to say we became friends. I had a long conversation with Governor White just a few weeks ago, we discussed my race for Lt Governor, and he was as energetic and passionate about the state we both love, as usual. I valued my time with Governor White because I found him to be very generous in spirit and very compassionate as all men and women in public life should be.

Governor White represented the kind of leader we long for today, someone who would bring people together to solve problems honestly. I will miss Governor White very much and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
