Remembering Governor Bill Richardson

Remembering Governor Bill Richardson

Democratic leaders and prominent figures have been  paying tribute to one of the preeminent statesmen and public servants of our time whose loss is felt by  New Mexico and the entire nation – Governor Bill Richardson.


It is with profound sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Governor Bill Richardson who dedicated his life to public service and the betterment of the world, and in particular, New Mexico. His extraordinary leadership and tireless commitment to the values of the Democratic Party will always be remembered. Governor Richardson dreamed big as New Mexico’s top executive and as a diplomat, he never backed down from the toughest jobs to save American lives, even if it meant negotiating with some of our era’s most notoriously despotic individuals.


Democratic leaders and prominent figures from around the world continue to share their memories and thoughts on Governor Richardson’s legacy. Here’s what some of them had to say.






























Thank you,
