Statement from Sen. Tom Kean on the passing of former Senate Republican Executive Director Jim Harkness. (CC0)

“It is with great sadness that I report the peaceful passing this morning of our friend and former colleague, Jim Harkness. Jim will always be remembered for his intellect and humor, for his love of his wife and children, and for his dedication to public service.

“You could always count on Jim to brighten your day with a good joke and to offer sage advice, often at the same time. Jim was the best of the best. Our Senate Republican family is devastated by his loss today.

“On behalf of the entire caucus, I offer Jean and their children our greatest condolences.”
