Congressman McGovern Honors Officer Tarentino on House Floor

Friday, May 27, 2016

 

Congressman Jim McGovern spoke on the House floor on Thursday to honor Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr., a member of the Auburn Police Department who was shot and killed in the line of duty this past weekend. 

See the Video and Text of McGovern's Statement Below 

“Today I rise to honor Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr., a member of the Auburn Police Department in Massachusetts, who was tragically shot and killed in the line of duty this past weekend.

Officer Tarentino exemplified the courage and dedication that defines our incredible men and women in blue. His neighbors and friends described him as a ‘gentle giant,’ a ‘great guy,’ and ‘always willing to help.’ He always kept an eye out for the 91-year-old widow living across the street.

Remembering Officer Tarentino this week, Auburn Police Chief Andrew J. Sluckis said, ‘He got along with everybody. He was somebody who was always smiling. He was an outstanding guy, and we’re going to miss him.’ That’s how he’ll be remembered.

In the days since this tragedy, it has been truly inspiring to see the Auburn, Leicester and surrounding communities come together to support Officer Tarentino’s wife and three children. My heart goes out to them and I know I am not alone in saying that Officer Tarentino will never be forgotten.”
