is working to get reaction from local and state leaders to the news that Osama bin Laden has been killed.

We’re still waiting to hear back from SGA President Michael Kilbride for his reaction, however, former state Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink just sent us a statement sharing her reaction.

“Today, Floridians and Americans and freedom-loving people across the globe are celebrating the demise of Osama bin Laden. I am incredibly proud of President Obama and the American military and intelligence forces for their persistence, focus and decisive leadership in successfully hunting down bin Laden and delivering justice for the Floridians and Americans who perished on September 11th, 2001. I am humbled by the extraordinary courage and skill our military and intelligence community displayed in executing this mission. Our resolve to continue fighting terrorism and protecting our homeland is strengthened by today’s news,” Sink’s statement read. will let you know if we get any other reaction from student leaders or students here at UCF.
