November 20, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-02) released the following statement following the passing of Connecticut State Representative Linda Orange (D-Colchester, Lebanon, Windham, Mansfield):

“It is with the greatest of sadness that the State of Connecticut learned today of the passing of a selfless public servant and great person, State Representative Linda Orange. Linda was an outstanding legislator, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity as a former member of our State Legislature to watch her first foray into public service when she clerked for the Human Services Committee in the General Assembly, which I chaired at the time. Linda had a knack for working with people and achieving real results – it was apparent back then, and throughout her fifteen years of service to her constituents. Linda leaves a huge legacy for her office and for the Public Safety Committee, and a footprint in her community that will live on to the benefit of others. My deepest condolences go out to her family and loved ones.”
