 Mayor Bob Buckhorn released the following statement on the passing of Fred Karl:

"Fred Karl was a war hero, dutiful public servant, and statesman. No matter his role, Fred was always a calming influence on those around him. He believed that fairness should always carry the day, and his love for our community and the people, who shaped it, regardless of their color or creed, superseded anything else. Fred represented everything good about public service and carried himself with the moral dignity of a man whose ethical compass always pointed true north.

"Fred will be missed, and my thoughts are with his wife and family."
