Sen. Hwang Statement on Passing of Former State Rep. Julia Wasserman

August 18, 2015

State Sen. Tony Hwang (R-28) issued the following statement Aug. 18 on the passing of former state Rep. Julia Wasserman:

“I’m incredibly sad to learn of Ms. Wasserman’s passing, yet I find comfort knowing she lived an incredible life. From a child who escaped the Nazis in Germany and saw the worst of humanity, Julia Wasserman made her life mission to be the best of humanity. She demonstrated that through her 18 years of public service in the legislature and her passionate dedication to community and faith, and in countless other ways. She was truly the embodiment of all that is good and she was one of the classiest people I’ve ever met.”

“Ms. Wasserman’s passing is a profound loss for the Newtown community and the entire State of Connecticut. My heart and prayers will remain with her immediate and extended family, as well as her many friends and former colleagues.”
