Former Springfield GOP Chairman and State Legislator Passes Away

Former Chairman of the Springfield GOP, former State legislator representing the Pine Point and Mason Square neighborhoods (which happens to be the seat, I believe, occupied by Ben Swan), and Purple Heart recipient Fred Whitney passed away a little over a week ago.

I figured I would post this here as most of you have been involved in politics a lot longer than I have and therefore may have known him. I had the opportunity of meeting and talking with Fred and his son Donald in Late August of this year at the Organization of the Springfield Ward 5 GOP. He will be missed.
