Ilisa Halpern Paul Remembers former Arkansas Governor and U.S. Senator Dale Bumpers

January 13, 2016

District Policy Group President Ilisa Halpern Paul discusses Dale Bumper’s recent passing in her latest Morning Consult column, “Remembering Dale Bumpers – From a Senate Gone By.”

Ilisa remembers the three and a half years she worked with Dale after his senate retirement, and during his third career as a consultant and lobbyist. The former Governor and Senator attended her 2006 wedding, encouraging her to have more work-life balance. Ilisa states that Dale considered public service a calling and a duty, and often reflected on the current state of the Senate. “Dale was a man of deep integrity, an amazing work ethic, and a terrific sense of humor. Unlike other retired Congressmen of his generation, he showed up every day ready to work a full day and earn his keep.”
