CBF Statement on Passing of A. Linwood Holton Jr.

Chesapeake Bay Foundation Virginia Executive Director Peggy Sanner issued the following statement on the passing of former Virginia Governor A. Linwood Holton.

 “With the passing of former Governor Linwood Holton, Virginia has lost a hero whose actions as governor led the Commonwealth out of a dark period and into the modern era.  His unflinching stance against racial segregation and his recognition that we must protect our waterways from sewage pollution place him among Virginia’s greatest leaders.”
