Rice Tribute: Joe Vitale

By David Wildstein, March 15 2023 5:22 pm

State Sen. Joseph Vitale released the following statement on the death of former State Sen. Ronald Rice:

“I can’t adequately express my sorrow at the news of Ron’s passing. I had the great honor to serve with Ron for many years on the Senate Health Committee. He was always a champion for those in our state who are most at-risk, and have less access to quality health care. Ron believed rightly and passionately that affordable care should not be a privilege but a right. His fearlessness and forthrightness on that and many other issues will be sorely missed.”
