I don’t know the details but I was saddened to learn of the death of Rich Savage yesterday. I met Rich back on January 2009 when he entered the race for LG. We’ve stayed in touch since, although I haven’t spoken to him in a while.
Savage’s campaign for LG was short-lived but he made an impact on the conversation. He continued to stay involved in politics, and last ran for school board in Richmond. But he wasn’t all politics: his foundation was a continuance of his efforts in eduction.
RIP Rich. You truly will be missed.
