Statement by Caroline Kennedy on the appointment of Paul G. Kirk, Jr. as U.S. Senator from Massachusetts
I congratulate Governor Deval Patrick on his selection of Paul G. Kirk, Jr. to represent the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States Senate.
Paul Kirk is the epitome of a citizen-patriot. He is a wonderful friend, and I am thrilled that the citizens of Massachusetts will benefit from the same extraordinary leadership that he has brought to the Kennedy Library and Foundation.
Paul’s life long commitment to democracy and civic engagement has given life to my father’s belief that one person can make a difference, and earned him the friendship and respect of politicians on both sides of the aisle. Paul’s wisdom, kindness and integrity mean the world to the entire Kennedy family.
