PITTSBURGH, December 1, 2018 – American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement on the passing of former President George H.W. Bush:
“Along with the entire country, the American Cable Association honors and remembers the life and service of former President George H.W. Bush. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bush family as the country unites with the Bush family at a time of great loss and sorrow.
“Over his long life and distinguished career, President Bush was a leader who placed the long-term interests of America over everything else, a patriot whose duty and service were a way of life, and a soft-spoken family man who showed us what it meant to be a loving husband and father. America has lost a hero, but the example set by President Bush will endure.”
