Eugene Kane.

Eugene Kane.

Eugene was an incredibly gifted writer, and more importantly than that, he was an incredibly passionate person about equity and justice in our society, and specifically in our city.

“I knew him for decades. There were times we worked closely together. There were times when he challenged me and challenged the City. And, every time that he challenged us I took it very seriously because I knew that he was speaking from a place of wanting to do what’s right for the people of this community.

“It’s heartbreaking to see that he has passed away.
