Press Release

Washington, D.C U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) today issued the following statement on the passing of former Wisconsin Representative Robert W. Kastenmeier:

“Bob Kastenmeier will always be one of Wisconsin’s greatest legislators.  Bob leaves behind a long legacy as a champion for the people of Wisconsin and the United States. He was a leading voice for civil rights and civil liberties, and an advocate for peace in his 32-years as a U.S. Representative and decades after. 

“I got my start in national politics knocking on doors for Bob’s campaigns while in college.  I’ll always remember how much his constituents loved and admired him.  Today, as an heir to Bob’s legacy, I work every day to live up to his standard and to follow his model as a legislator.

“As we remember Bob’s life and his service to our country, our thoughts are with his wife, Dorothy.”
