Senator Dennis Bradley Releases Statement on Passing of Former Senator Ed Gomes

Today, Senator Dennis Bradley (D-Bridgeport) released the following statement regarding the passing of former State Senator Ed Gomes:

“Today, Bridgeport lost a true fighter for our city and people all too suddenly. It will always be an honor to serve in the same seat he once held and sustained with such grace and vigor. It was my hope that I would one day be able to look back and reflect on all that the field of public service has allowed me to do, but with only the acknowledgement and awareness that I stood on the shoulders of giants before me. Senator Ed Gomes committed his life to public service and was loved and revered by our great city. As a city driven by working class people, he dedicated his work and resilience to them. My prayers go out to his loved ones, may he rest in power.”
