Senator Lugar's Statement on Passing of Beurt SerVaas

The Lugar Center
February 3, 2014

Beurt SerVaas was instrumental in the foundation of UNIGOV, but more importantly, his service as President of the City-County Council for 27 years was indispensable in the success of UNIGOV and the outstanding progress of Indianapolis. I admired Beurt SerVaas as a successful business innovator, but I treasured his loyal friendship in politics and governance because he was intelligent, courageous, and always present to serve in good times and bad. My thoughts and prayers are with the SerVaas family at this time of grievous loss.
