A JOINT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF MONTANA RECOGNIZING THE STELLAR CAREER OF MIKE MANSFIELD AND THE ESSENTIAL SUPPORT OF HIS WIFE MAUREEN AND AUTHORIZING THE PLACEMENT OF A COMMEMORATIVE STATUE ON THE CAPITOL COMPLEX.
WHEREAS, Mike Mansfield served as majority leader in the United States Senate longer than any other person in the history of the republic; and
WHEREAS, Mike Mansfield subsequently also established a longevity record as United States Ambassador to Japan, serving in both the Carter and Reagan administrations; and
WHEREAS, Mike Mansfield's statesmanship helped guide America through an extraordinary period in our nation's history, a period in which the country was drawn into three wars, weathered domestic turmoil pitting race against race and generation against generation, and finally overcame an agonizing crisis of confidence in its leadership that saw the resignation of a president at its nadir and fulfilled its turn upward with American triumph against the global tyranny of communism; and
WHEREAS, in an era of widespread skepticism of government and governmental leaders, Mike Mansfield stood always above suspicion, exemplary of the notion that governmental public service is indeed a noble calling; and
WHEREAS, Mike Mansfield reflected in this statement about his native state, the nourishment of his roots of greatness, "[t]he minds of Montanans dwell not only upon community and state, but upon the nation and the world and on the essential unity of all. And this sense of unity is buttressed by the harsh uncertainties of an all powerful environment which has taught us to draw together in a mutual concern for one another . . ."; and
WHEREAS, by his own account, Senator and Ambassador Mike Mansfield could not have served his state and his nation so ably or won the recognition or achieved the positions that he has without the support of his wife Maureen Hayes Mansfield; and
WHEREAS, Mike Mansfield has said that his three great loves are his wife Maureen, Montana, and the United States Senate; and
WHEREAS, Senator and Ambassador Mike Mansfield of Montana, national and international statesman, always the insightful and visionary thinker, well known and revered on the national and international stage, remains always and affectionately known to his fellow Montanans simply and eloquently as "Mike".
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF MONTANA:
That a statue be permanently placed on the Capitol complex in Helena, Montana, to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of United States Senator and Ambassador Mike Mansfield to the State of Montana and the nation and to recognize that those accomplishments and contributions could not have occurred without the support of his wife Maureen Hayes Mansfield; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Capitol Complex Advisory Council approve the design and placement of the statue.
