Governor Quinn Statement on Tragic Death of Transportation Worker in Stark County

 Governor Pat Quinn today issued the following statement regarding the Friday morning Stark County accident that killed Illinois Department of Transportation employee, 49-year-old Michael Holmes of Wyoming, Ill.:

“Michael Holmes is a hero. He gave his life while making our roads safer for his fellow citizens. Michael selflessly faced challenging conditions every winter since 2007 so the rest of us could arrive safely at our destinations.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fellow employees during this difficult time.

"I am ordering the state's flags to be flown at half-staff so all Illinois citizens can be reminded of Michael’s dedication and sacrifice.”
