Higgins statement on the passing of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter

PRESS RELEASE


WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Brian Higgins, D-Buffalo, issued the following press release regarding the passing of Rochester Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.
It is with great sadness we learn of the passing of my friend, and a great friend to Western New York, Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.  Her commitment to public service was extraordinary, serving 47 years in elected office, including 32 years in Congress.  She was a strong and respected leader in the House of Representatives and a passionate advocate for the community she represented and loved.  The nation has lost a fervent defender of righteous policies and Western New York has lost a champion. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family."
