Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
His Holiness Pope Francis September 24, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"He died—every place he went, it was early. He got to morning mass, 7 o’clock mass, early. It had not started. The priest had not come out yet. He put his head on his shoulder and died. He was such a good man. Those of us who knew him—and so many people knew him—know that he would have enjoyed living in a time where His Holiness is known not just for his influence, knowledge, and righteousness but for his good deeds and kindness to those in need. My friend Mike O’Callaghan had a lot of those same traits."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Continued September 22, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"It was a short time thereafter that he was elected justice of the peace of Las Vegas. During this period of time, the role of the justice of the peace changed. It became more of a judicial officer rather than someone who became fabulously wealthy by marrying hundreds and hundreds of people. That is the way it used to be. He did a very good job as justice of the peace. He was so impressive that the Governor of the State of Nevada, Mike O’Callaghan, appointed him to serve as a Nevada district court judge representing Clark County."
Congratulating The Majority Leader January 3, 2013
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Between hitchhiking more than 40 miles and staying with extended relatives, Harry was able to attend Basic High School, the nearest high school to Searchlight. While at Basic High in Henderson, he met two people who dramatically changed his life—Landra Gould, who would become his wife of 53 years and counting, and Mike O’Callaghan, who was a coach, a teacher, a mentor, and a friend. Harry Reid said of Mike O’Callaghan that he was the toughest man he ever met."
Honoring Harriet Trudell On Her 80Th Birthday August 3, 2012
Shelley Berkley, D-NV
"Harriet served as Southern Nevada Aide for Governor Michael O’Callaghan from 1974 to 1978 and as the Foreign Affairs Aide for Congressman Harry Reid in Washington, D.C. from 1983 to 1986."
Honoring Jan Gilbert For 30 Years Of Advocacy Work In Nevada May 8, 2012

Most recently, she was named a 2012 “Champion of Change” by the White House."
