Hoeven Statement on Death of State Sen. Fischer

BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven and his wife Mikey extended their condolences today to the family and friends of North Dakota State Senator Tom Fischer, who died yesterday.

            “Tom was a good legislator, a good business owner, and, above all, a good man. He was a dedicated state leader on water issues and worked to find solutions to the Fargo region’s annual flood fight. A true public servant, Tom strove to build consensus on issues important to him, especially when it came to flooding. Mikey and I are saddened by his loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with Margaret, his sons Adam and Paul, and his entire family.”
