Statement from Governor Quinn on the Passing of Former State Rep. Joel Brunsvold

CHICAGO – September 7, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement regarding the passing of former state representative and Illinois Department of Natural Resources Director Joel Brunsvold.

“Joel was good man and a devoted public servant whom I have known for many years.

“During his 20 years in the Illinois General Assembly, he served residents of the Quad Cities with great energy and commitment. Then, as director of the Department of Natural Resources, Joel led efforts to build the World Shooting Complex in Sparta – which has been a great thing for the state of Illinois.

“Joel was an avid outdoorsman who cared about the environment and the outdoors. We will miss him greatly.”
