Kaine Statement On The Passing Of Meyera Oberndorf

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement on the passing of former Virginia Beach Mayor Meyera Oberndorf:

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Meyera Oberndorf. Meyera and I served as Virginia mayors at the same time, and she was exceptional in so many ways. In addition to being the longest-serving mayor of Virginia Beach, she was the first woman to hold that office and was beloved by the entire Virginia Beach community. Because of these distinctions, her quick wit and her commitment to public service, she will be greatly missed by those who knew her and those she represented.”
