Senators Looney, Duff Release Statement on Passing of Former Senator Ed Gomes

Today Senate President Pro Tempore Martin Looney and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff released the following statement regarding the passing of former State Senator Ed Gomes:

“Ed Gomes was a colleague, a genuine friend, and a man that everyone loved. He was one of the most authentic people to ever serve in the Senate and devoted so much of his life toward fighting for hard-working people of Connecticut. Ed could tell a story like no other whether to humanize the most complex policy question or make everyone in a room burst with laughter. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends and the countless others around the state that knew his great spirit and were better for it.”
