STATEMENT BY SENATE DEMOCRATIC LEADER CHRIS SMITH ON PASSING OF SENATOR LARCENIA BULLARD
TALLAHASSEE – Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith on Saturday issued the following statement upon the sudden news of the passing of Senator Larcenia Bullard:
“I am incredibly saddened with the news of Senator Bullard’s passing. She was not only a mentor to me, but a woman many loved for her outspoken ways and selfless devotion to the people she represented.
“Even when ill, Senator Bullard remained determined to serve those who elected her – those whose faith she carried and protected. “On the Senate Floor, she spoke of things that gave inspiration to many; she never shied away from controversial issues. And she never shied away from standing up for issues she believed were right.
“After being term-limited, she returned to the Senate just one week ago. Ever the free spirit, she danced for the Senate’s very own version of the ‘Harlem Shake’ in a way only Larcenia could!
“As our hearts and prayers go out to her son, Senator Dwight Bullard, and her husband, former Representative Ed Bullard – ever at her side – this we know…she is still dancing in heaven.”
