It is with great sadness that I was informed of the sudden death of Senator Jean-Claude Frécon, late President of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities.
Local and regional authorities have lost a talented defender of subsidiarity and the Assembly of European Regions a trusted friend.
I present, on behalf of all AER members, our sincerest condolences to his wife Ginette and his three children.
Dr Hande Özsan Bozatli
President, Assembly of European Regions
