Mayor Brand Statement on the Passing of Harry Armstrong

Mayor Lee Brand released the following statement on the passing of longtime Clovis Councilman Harry Armstrong:

“Our community has lost a legend. Harry Armstrong was a local government icon and a mentor for many politicians and policymakers.   I first met Harry when I was elected to Fresno City Council in 2008, and I was immediately impressed with his sincerity and his integrity. He was the embodiment of collaboration and always a professional. 

Harry’s legacy will live on throughout our region. During his half-century of service, Clovis grew, the Central Valley grew. Politicians came and went. Fashions changed. But one thing remained constant – Harry Armstrong. He was truly one of a kind and he will be missed.”
