April 24, 2015

Hartford, CT – State Senator Tony Guglielmo (R-Stafford) released the following statement today re: passing of former State Senator and Vernon Mayor Marie Herbst.

“I am very saddened by the passing of Marie Herbst. We had the most spirited campaign for state senate in the 35th district. Marie was a town councilor and the former Mayor of Vernon. In her capacity as a local leader I would have to go before her for meetings. She always was very fair with her questions and very respectful despite differences. In the end we really respected one another. Her years of public service have made Connecticut and the people of the 35th district proud.”
