Governor Lamont Statement on the Resignation of State Representative Linda Orange

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont released the following statement regarding State Representative Linda Orange (D-Colchester, Lebanon, Windham, Mansfield), who today announced her intention to resign her seat in the General Assembly effective February 1, 2020 to focus her attention on her health:

“Virtually anyone who has met Linda Orange would agree that she is the sunshine of the State Capitol – equal parts optimistic, caring, humorous, and joyful, and her warmhearted laugh fills the room. She is a vocal advocate on behalf of her constituents in eastern Connecticut and remains one of the most ardent champions supporting our state’s first responders. I am certain that this was a difficult decision and it is with great sadness that we received this news. We are grateful for the public service she has provided our state throughout her years in office.”
