Senator Needleman Releases Statement on Passing of Rep. Orange

Today, State Senator Norm Needleman (D-Essex) issued the following statement after it was announced that State Representative Linda Orange (D-Colchester) passed away due to complications from pancreatic cancer on Wednesday, November 20.

“The death of Representative Orange is a loss for her colleagues, her constituents and the state of Connecticut,” said Sen. Needleman. “I’m heartbroken that we’ve lost a friend, mentor and legislator who never stopped fighting for what she believed in. I hope every legislator can be inspired by her legacy and her tireless efforts to support her community. She and Senator Eileen Daley were inseparable; I know they’re reunited, sipping drinks and watching over us.”
