CT Dems’ Statement On The Passing Of Rep. Mary Fritz

Hartford, Ct. –¬†Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto and Vice Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo released the following statements on the passing of longtime Democratic legislator Mary Fritz:

“Mary Fritz was a dedicated public servant and a good friend of many years,” said Balletto. “From her tenure as a Board of Education member, to her 16 terms in the House of Representatives, Mary’s desire to improve the lives of the people she served was unmatched. The people of Wallingford and the state of Connecticut lost a champion today, but her legacy of public service will live on through the many, many people she touched over the years.”

“Mary always put the well-being of her constituents over partisan divides,” said DiNardo. “She reached across the aisle to get things done for her community. No one can question her commitment to public service, but she was also a genuinely good person. I will miss her – both as a strong voice in the legislature, and as a friend.”
