Bucks County state legislators mourn Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick’s passing

HARRISBURG, Jan. 6 – Bucks County state legislators today came together to mourn the passing of their colleague, former U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, 56. 

In his roles as Bucks County commissioner, township supervisor and U.S. representative, Fitzpatrick often worked across the aisle on important initiatives and built long-lasting friendships with many Democratic legislators.

State Rep. Tina Davis, D-141, said, “Mike was a great guy to work with—incredibly smart, knowledgeable about local and state issues. He was a man of grace and honor. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Fitzpatrick family.”

State Rep. John Galloway, D-140, said, “I’ve known Mike for 35 years. He was a great elected official and a better person. From the Galloway clan to the Fitzpatrick’s, I would like to say how very sorry we are to hear of Mike’s passing.”

State Rep. Wendy Ullman, D-143, said, "Mike served his community, the commonwealth and his country with dedication and valor. He left a big footprint in Bucks County."

State Rep. Perry Warren, D-31, said, “As congressman, Bucks County commissioner, township supervisor and private citizen, Mike Fitzpatrick set the standard for participation and activity in the community. He was everywhere – the face of the community he represented. My family and I are sorry for his loss and offer our condolences to his brother, Brian and his entire family."
