U.S. Representative George Miller (D- Contra Costa County) issued the following statement on the passing of former Contra Costa Times environmental correspondent Mike Taugher:

“I am deeply saddened by the news of the untimely death of Mike Taugher and I extend to his family and friends my deepest sympathy. I only knew Mike professionally, as he covered California water issues for The Contra Costa Times, the same issues that I work on as a Member of Congress from the Delta region.  But I can say that Mike was unquestionably fair, knowledgeable, and deeply insightful about the issues he covered. He helped to broaden people’s understanding of the environmental issues we face in California and I hope that his family will take some solace in knowing that many of us will remember Mike as a solid professional and very decent person.”
