CHICAGO – Following the death of his esteemed friend and colleague, State Senator Scott Bennett, State Senator Robert Peters released the following statement:

“I am deeply saddened to learn about Senator Bennett’s passing. It was just last week we were sitting next to each other and working on legislation together.

“More than a hard worker and state senator, he truly had a divine sense of humor. He was always making us laugh, and he was a pleasure to work with. He knew how to diffuse a tense negotiation with a perfectly timed joke or comment.

“My condolences are with wife his wife and children, and I know he will not be forgotten.”
