Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator and State Treasurer Harlan Mathews.
“I will never forget the tremendous kindness that Harlan and Pat Mathews showed to Elizabeth and me when we moved to Nashville in the middle 90s to assume our first role in public service,” said Corker. “Harlan was a great friend, always available with a sage word of advice, and a true gentleman devoted to public service. He was beloved throughout our state and will be missed.”
