WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) issued a statement today on the passing of former state Del. Alan A. Diamonstein:
“Alan Diamonstein was a powerful force in Virginia, national politics and his community. He was a major figure in making our Commonwealth a more inclusive, forward-looking and fairer place.
“I was proud to call him an adviser and a mentor, but most importantly – my dear friend.
“I will miss Alan very much, and will be thinking of Beverly and their children during this difficult time.”
