March 22, 2016

Hartford – Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement regarding State Representative Mary Fritz’s (D-Cheshire/Wallingford) announcement that she will be retiring from the General Assembly.

“Mary Fritz is a strong person who will be sorely missed in the state legislature. My very first year in office I remember learning many valuable lessons from Mary. She taught me what it means to represent your constituents with more than just your votes. She taught me about persistence, advocacy and dedication to give the people of our districts a voice at the Capitol. She always voted her conscience, not party lines. I have an incredible amount of respect for Mary and I will be very sad to see her retire from the legislature.”
