AUGUSTA – Senate President Troy Jackson, D-Allagash, released the following statement regarding the passing of Rep. John Tuttle:
“Today, I join so many in mourning the passing of my friend and colleague, Rep. John Tuttle. John spent his life serving the very community he grew up in, whether it was enlisting in the Maine National Guard, responding to a crisis as an emergency medical technician, or advocating for working-class families and folks who felt left behind in the Maine Legislature. Those of us who served alongside him knew that his deep love for the City of Sanford could only be matched by his love and commitment to his family – his wife, Ann, his daughter, and his grandchildren.
“As we mourn this profound loss, I want to extend my deepest condolences to John’s family and loved ones. His passing marks a tremendous loss for our legislative family. He was a devoted public servant who wasn’t afraid to crack a joke and never took himself too seriously. I know the state and the City of Sanford are better off thanks to John’s service.”
