     Statement from Senator Kevin Parker Honoring Geraldine Ferraro

     Our nation and state has lost a remarkable woman who served as an ambassador, a vice presidential candidate,  a Member of Congress, a prosecutor, a wife, and mother.  A proud daughter of Newburgh, Geraldine Ferraro never forgot her roots and was respected as a fierce advocate for the least fortunate in our society.  Her vision inspired women not only in the America but around the world.

     

    “We will miss Gerry.  The people have lost a champion.  My thoughts and prayers are with Gerry’s husband John, her children, and their family,” said Senator Parker
