FUMO STATEMENT ON PASSING OF LT. GOVERNOR KNOLL


     HARRISBURG, November 13, 2008
State Senator Vince Fumo (D-Philadelphia) issued the following statement today regarding the death last night of Lt. Governor Catherine Baker Knoll:

     "I was saddened to learn of the passing of Lt. Governor Knoll. Catherine and I were close for a long time; I have been friends with her and her family for many years. It is a huge loss for me personally and for the Commonwealth. She was a warm and caring person, and that was reflected in her tireless efforts for the people of Pennsylvania. She was a true champion of the poor, of working men and women, and of seniors in our state. My prayers go out for her and her loved ones. I will miss her."
