Friday, November 09, 2012


Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick

Governor Deval Patrick and Lt. Governor Tim Murray today released statements on the passing of former Massachusetts Congressman Joseph Early.

Gov. Patrick and Lt. Gov. Murray's statements can be read below:

“My heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and family of Congressman Joe Early,” said Governor Patrick. “Joe’s dedication to public service and the people of central Massachusetts paved the way for many public servants who followed in his footsteps. His unwavering commitment to creating a better Commonwealth will be deeply missed by his former colleagues and constituents.”

“My thoughts and prayers are with the Early family as we mourn the loss of former Massachusetts Congressman Joe Early,” said Lieutenant Governor Murray. “Joe was a tenacious advocate for both central Massachusetts and the Commonwealth, first serving in the state legislature then in the U.S. Congress. From his leadership in establishing UMass Medical School in Worcester to securing federal NIH funding to benefit health and science research in Massachusetts, today the Commonwealth continues to build on his successes and his legacy will never be forgotten.”
