Statement from Speaker Silver
Regarding the Passing of Dr. Richard Daines

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Richard Daines, an exemplary public leader.

Dr. Daines' tenure as Commissioner of the Department of Health was marked by his intellect, dedication, and humility. His dignity and his spirit of compassionate service live on in all who served with him.

My thoughts and prayers and those of my Assembly colleagues go out to the Daines family during this difficult time.
