Statement on the Passing of Shaun Lumachi

I am deeply shocked and saddened to learn of of the tragic death of Shaun Lumachi. Shaun was a great friend and loyal supporter.  He was a young man devoted to Long Beach, deeply involved in many local organizations.  He believed in the importance of active civil participation as evident by his hard work and commitment to the Long Beach Post and keeping the community informed and engaged.  Julie and I send our thoughts and prayers to his family at this very difficult time.
