National Parks Conservation Association Joins the Nation in Expressing Sorrow over Tragedy in Tucson

Statement by NPCA President Tom Kiernan

“On behalf of the National Parks Conservation Association, I extend my condolences and sympathy to friends and family of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Federal Judge John M. Roll, and all the victims of the tragic, senseless attack this past Saturday in Tucson.

“Congresswoman Giffords is a friend of conservation, dedicated public servant, and wonderful person we have had the privilege of working with to protect special places like Saguaro National Park, for our children and grandchildren.  Judge Roll was a decent, fair-minded jurist known and respected in conservation circles for the cases he heard on endangered species and border issues.

“Our hearts go out to the families and friends of all of those who were simply exercising a democratic ideal, to meet on their home turf with their elected official. This horrific event underscores the need to return to civility in public debate, treating our hard-working public servants with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
