Bolling: Former Rep. Thomas Bliley, 91, Passes Away

I was sorry to hear of the passing of former Richmond Mayor and 7th district Representative Tom Bliley: Thomas J. Bliley Jr. dies, former Richmond mayor, congressman [1] (Richmond Times-Dispatch).

What a great life he lived!

Tom Bliley was of tremendous help to me when I was first starting my own political journey, and I will never forget his kindness, encouragement and support.

He was not only a very effective Mayor and Congressman, but he was a true Virginia gentlemen. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
