GOV. MALLOY DIRECTS STATE FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF IN HONOR OF STATE REPRESENTATIVE LAWRENCE MILLER

(HARTFORD, CT)Governor Dannel P. Malloy today directed State of Connecticut flags to be lowered to half-staff in honor of State Representative Lawrence G. Miller.

"Larry Miller was a dedicated and passionate legislator who served Stratford, Shelton, and Trumbull since 1991 in the Connecticut General Assembly with great honor and distinction," Governor Malloy said. "Whether it was leading the charge to recognize Gustave Whitehead as the first in flight in our nation or advocating to enhance our state's environmental and energy policies, Larry Miller worked in a bipartisan manner to support the interests of his constituents and the citizens of Connecticut. His presence will truly be missed in the Connecticut General Assembly. Cathy and I send our condolences to his wife Mildred, his three children, and his constituents in the 122nd Assembly district."

Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman said, "Larry Miller was a strong advocate for his constituents and for the State of Connecticut. I had the honor of working with him and knew him to be a dedicated leader, and a truly committed public servant. He will be greatly missed."

State of Connecticut flags will remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of his interment, the date of which has not yet been determined.
