Dennis House, host of Face the State, is reporting Sen. Edith Prague, D-Columbia has been hospitalized with a stroke.
I don’t care whether you agree with her political positions or not. She should be admired for remaining active and engaged at the age of 86.
Just yesterday I was reading a letter she sent last week to state utility regulators opposing the merger of Northeast Utilities with Massachusetts’-based NSTAR.
In the final frenzied days of the legislative session, when folks half her age are in bed, Prague can still be found in the Senate chamber, chatting with colleagues, staffers and lobbyists, debating bills and casting late night/early morning votes.
This 37-year-old has always found her presence in Hartford inspiring and wishes her a speedy recovery.
UPDATE: Senate President Donald Williams, D-Brooklyn released the following statement: “Our thoughts are with Edith and her family as she recovers from a minor stroke. I spoke with Edith earlier this week and she was in good spirits and eager to begin her rehabilitation. On behalf of her Senate family, we look forward to her speedy return to the Capitol.”
