JACKSON, Miss. – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released the following statement upon learning of the death of former Mississippi Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall.
“By the time Dick Hall and I became freshman state senators together, he had already led a distinguished career in public service. As a state legislator and later as a Commissioner of Transportation, Dick was a true champion for Mississippi. He worked tirelessly to advance job creation and build the infrastructure that our state needs. I am glad to count him as a friend, and Gayle and I send our deepest sympathies to his wife, Jennifer, and his loved ones.
