State Senator Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) remembers Senator Scott Bennett, a friend and colleague, who passed away on Friday, December 9, 2022:
“The entire Rose family is deeply saddened to hear of the news of the passing of Senator Scott Bennett. Scotty was a great guy, who worked tirelessly for the folks of Champaign and Vermilion Counties. I always enjoyed the fact that when it came to local issues, we would work together without partisanship.
“I always looked forward to seeing him around town whether at the YMCA or the Buffalo Wild Wings, where we would occasionally run into each other with our kids. The world needs more Scott Bennetts, not less. Our prayers go out to his entire family.”
