Governor Little issues statement on passing of Bill Roden

Thursday July 11, 2019

Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little issued the following statement today on the passing of former legislator and lobbyist, Bill Roden, who died at his home on July 8, 2019.

For nearly 60 years, Bill Roden helped shape the quality of life we enjoy in Idaho. Bill was always generous in giving his advice and counsel to new legislators and governors, and his advice was not just welcome but needed. Those of us serving in public life aspire to what Bill represented. He was civil at all times, stood for good governance, and worked tirelessly to make Idaho a great place to live. Bill left a huge mark on Idaho that will last for generations to come. He now joins his wife, Betty, without whom Bill would not have contributed so much to Idaho. Teresa and I extend our condolences to Bill’s family and loved ones.
