Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today U.S. Representative Denny Heck (WA-10) released a statement following the announcement of the passing of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter:

“There will never be anyone like Congresswoman Louise Slaughter. Born and bred in Kentucky, she was an early and tenacious feminist with a strong Southern drawl in upstate New York. She served her district honorably for more than three decades, and was our trusted leader in the House Rules Committee. She was a warm person with tremendous energy, and we will all miss her terribly.”
