Press Releases
Statement Regarding Congressman John Olver's Retirement Announcement
October 26, 2011

“For the past 20 years John Olver has been what he promised he would be, a workhorse, not a show horse, representing western Massachusetts in the U.S. House. It was an honor to work on his staff and I was proud to work closely with him as a State Senator. I learned much about what it takes to be a good public servant from John Olver, and for that I can't thank him enough.
 
We in western Massachusetts will miss having him represent us in Congress. I wish him, Rose and the rest of his family the best. He has given Massachusetts more than 40 years of public service, for which we should be eternally grateful.” -- State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield).
