STATEMENT OF THE VICE PRESIDENT
On the Death Of John Sturdivant
President of the American Federation of Government Employees
I am deeply saddened by the passing of John Sturdivant. He was a good friend, and an important ally in some of our most important initiatives. He cared deeply about this country, and the role that government can play in making life better for Americans.
John was a tireless voice for the federal employees that he represented. He was at the center of a new partnership between federal managers and employees that is critical to moving the federal government forward into the 21st Century. John was a warm, caring and dedicated person. We'll miss him.
