THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Hillary and I are deeply saddened by the death of Arthur Barbieri. New Haven has a lost a great political leader; I have lost a mentor and a friend.
When I was a law student, I was lucky enough to work by Arthur's side and learn grassroots politics at its absolute best. I'm forever grateful for all that he taught me. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.
