Rice Tribute: Steve Oroho

By David Wildstein, March 15 2023 2:56 pm

Senate Minority Leader Steve Oroho released the following statement on the death of former State Sen. Ronald Rice:

“I am saddened to learn of the passing of Senator Rice. He was a fierce advocate for his constituents and a colleague who was deeply respected on both sides of the aisle. When he believed you were doing the right thing, he would forget about party and lend his support. I can’t think of anyone who was better at speaking from the heart on the Senate floor than Ron. His passionate voice and his presence in our chamber will be sorely missed. On behalf of Senate Republicans, I offer our deepest condolences to Ron’s family and to all who knew and loved him.”
