Farewell to Si Galperin, Champion of Clean Elections

 
Si Galperin
Si Galperin

We sadly report that on June 17, 2007, Si Galperin, our lead Clean Elections lobbyist and former state Senator, beloved and respected by so many, died.

Si was a mentor to many people and a champion for both good government and the environment.

He was welcome in every office of the state Capitol. Words cannot adequately express our sense of loss. Si not only helped write the Clean Elections bill, but despite his health problems for the past few years, he also faithfully lobbied our bill.

His wonderful sense of humor, his sage political advice and his smiling face will be deeply missed. To honor him, we pledge to carry on this important effort and see it through to victory. Si, we hope you can whisper in a few politicians ears from the other side!
