Governor Tom Wolf has ordered all United States and Commonwealth flags to half-staff in honor of former Vice President Walter Mondale.
Mondale passed away yesterday at 93-years-old.
“My heartfelt condolences go out to the Mondale family, and to all those grieving the loss of former Vice President Mondale,” stated Governor Wolf. “He was a giant in American politics, one who transformed the nature of the vice presidency and reminded all of us that government should be a force for good in the lives of the American people.”
The United States Flag shall be lowered to half-staff and remain lowered until sunset on the date of interment, which has not yet been announced.
The Commonwealth flag has flown at half-staff since Wednesday, March 11, 2020 in honor of the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic and should continue to fly at half-staff until further notice.
All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.
