Schumer Statement On The Passing Of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter

March 16, 2018
“Congresswoman Louise Slaughter was a giant. She had deep convictions -- on both issues important to the people of Rochester, and for the integrity and honesty of the political system. Throughout her entire career, Louise worked with people from so many different philosophies and backgrounds, because she was such a genuine human spirit. The ferocity of her advocacy was matched only by the depth of her compassion and humanity. Her passing will leave a gaping hole in our hearts and our nation. My sincere condolences go out to her daughters and grandchildren and to the legions of people who loved and admired her,” said U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer.
