    Indianapolis, Ind.—Today, U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after the passing of W. Wayne Townsend, former farmer, state representative, state senator, and Democratic gubernatorial candidate from Hartford City.

    “Today, we mourn the loss of an outstanding Hoosier public servant. W. Wayne Townsend, a Hartford City native, served his state in the legislature for more than twenty years, was a leader in the ag community, and received the Frank O’Bannon Public Service Award for his work on behalf of Hoosiers. I was inspired by Wayne’s dedication to his community, state, and country and consider it an honor to have spent time getting to know him and learn from him. My family and I send our deepest condolences to the Townsend Family on the loss of Wayne.”

    Donnelly named a legislative program in his U.S. Senate office after Townsend in 2014. Learn more about the Wayne Townsend Legislative Program here.
