Charles Sargent had a distinguished career as a legislator. I was blessed to work with Charles in a number of different capacities. He was a legislative colleague back in the ‘90’s; we worked together when I was on staff at the legislature and most recently in my role as a TSEA staff member. At all times Charles Sargent was honest and straightforward. He cared deeply about the financial health of our great state. He was always available and ready to listen. In addition to his responsibilities as House Finance Chairman, he also served on the state insurance committee. In all his roles, he cared about state employees and often asked the difficult questions that needed to be asked to help protect state employees.
His absence from the legislative halls will present a great challenge to TSEA and our state. Our heartfelt prayers are with his family, friends and former staff members during this difficult time.
