Last week: We mourn the loss of Clay Shaw, who died this week at age 74. My family had the privilege of knowing Congressman Shaw for many years and long admired his dignified and steadfast commitment to public service. He was among the last of the great moderates who didn’t approach politics as zero-sum partisan combat, but instead sought common ground with his colleagues in Congress to address the most difficult issues of his time. Clay Shaw leaves a lasting impact on our community in so many ways, but most importantly he epitomizes the selfless devotion of a true public servant.
