Larson Statement on the Passing of Edith Prague
Hartford, CT – Today Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on the passing of former state Sen. Edith Prague.
“Edith Prague was a grand lady of the Senate and an unbelievable public servant. I was Senate President when she was first elected. I held an enormous amount of respect for her and enjoyed working with her during that time. She was legendary in her support of seniors and fighting for Social Security and Medicare. She was a force to be reckoned with alongside Sen. George ‘Doc’ Gunther, and my dear friend, Sen. Biagio ‘Billy’ Ciotto. She will be dearly missed. My sympathies go out to her family and friends,” said Larson.
