Statement on Death of Janet Reno by U.S. Conference of Mayors CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 07, 2016) - U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran today issued the following statement on the death of Attorney General Janet Reno:

"U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno understood our cities and their public safety needs; and she brought that understanding to many of the decisions she made as Attorney General.

"She was devoted to listening to the mayors of this nation. She came to our meetings and stayed with a notepad in her hand. Our recommendations meant a lot to her. She followed up with meetings in her office to help implement mayoral recommendations. And together working with President Clinton, we reduced crime, produced alternatives to crime and made American cities safer.

"She always operated with integrity, transparency and compassion. She will truly be missed."
