WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement about Mayor Tom Baldini:

“I was shocked and saddened to learn of Tom’s death, and Colleen and I extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends. From his time in the classroom to service in Governor Blanchard’s Administration and his recent election as Mayor of Marquette, Tom Baldini has been a pillar of the Upper Peninsula for decades, and his passion for Marquette and the UP were evident in all that he did. Like so many, I regularly sought out Tom’s advice and counsel, and I cherished our friendship. With his passing, the entire State of Michigan lost a true public servant.”
