Statement from Speaker Silver
Regarding the Passing of Senator Morahan

It is with deep sadness that I learned of the passing of Senator Tom Morahan. Although he only served one term in the Assembly, Tom was someone I considered a dear friend and gentleman legislator.

Senator Morahan was a staunch advocate for the community he so skillfully represented. The needs of the 38th Senate District were always at the forefront. His passing is a tremendous loss not only to the people of the Hudson Valley but also to our state. My thoughts and prayers and those of my Assembly colleagues go out to the Morahan family during this difficult time.
