Harrisburg, June 8, 2011 – State Sen. Jim Brewster today provided the following statement on the death of former Sen. Albert V. “Bud” Belan, who represented parts of Allegheny and Westmoreland counties between 1989 and 2000:

“I am deeply saddened by the death of my good friend and mentor, former Senator Bud Belan.

Buddy was a strong man, influential leader and a public official whose word was his bond. He was well liked and held the interests of those he represented at heart – in everything he did and everything he accomplished.

Whether it was during his years as a local district justice, or later as a state senator, Bud Belan had an indelible sense of fairness and an abiding dedication to causes in support of working families.

He will be missed. I extend my deepest condolences to his family at this difficult time.
