Greenwood Village, Colorado. – Colorado GOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown released the following statement this morning regarding the devastating news of the passing of Republican State Representative and House Republican Leader Hugh McKean:
“Dave and I are deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of Leader Hugh McKean. Hugh was a friend, a Republican leader, and a good man who worked for a better life for families all across Colorado.
“Whenever I saw him or spoke to him, he had an encouraging word and was ready to lift others up. Whenever I think of Hugh McKean, I’ll think of his smile and his positive outlook on life. One of the best memories I have of him is when I visited his office at the Capitol with my kids. In the middle of a busy legislative session, he still took the time to show my kids around his office, explain his science displays to them, and invest – even for a few minutes – in their lives. That was the Hugh McKean behind the political scene – a man who loved others and was happy to invest in them.
“I’ll miss my friend, and my family will be praying for his loved ones.”
