I am saddened to hear of the death today of state Rep. Esther Golar. For almost 10 years Rep. Golar has represented her constituents honorably and has been a selfless advocate for their interests. She understood that government is a vehicle of service, and operates at its best when it is collaborative. She was a believer in the strength of neighborhoods and communities, and was an ally on issues I hold dear: schools, public safety and healthcare. My sympathies go out to her family and close friends.
