"Tonight we mourn the loss of a dedicated Assembly member and a true gentleman with the passing of Michael Simanowitz.
As a person and professional, he had the respect of every member of our house, on both sides of the political aisle. His presence and spirit will be greatly missed in the Assembly.
I extend my deepest condolences to his family and loved ones during this tragic time."
