The Forward Party is heartbroken by the loss of Congressman Jim Kolbe. A happy warrior who wasn’t afraid to cross party lines, Jim always served in the best interest of his constituents. 

Jim dedicated his life to serving his country and fellow Arizonans. He bravely served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War, was elected to the Arizona State Legislature, and served 11 terms in the United States House of Representatives. 

We mourn Jim’s loss and urge all to lead their lives as Jim would: serving others and doing what’s right. May Jim’s memory be a blessing.
