Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the passing of Congressman Ron Wright of Texas:

“Today, the United States House of Representatives sadly mourns the passing of Congressman Ron Wright.  Representative Wright was a proud sixth-generation son of Tarrant County, who dedicated a life of public service to the people of Texas.  While his tenure in the House was brief, his service will be missed.

“As we grieve Congressman Wright’s passing, Members of Congress are united in sorrow and pray for the families and loved ones of the over 460,000 Americans who have been killed by the vicious coronavirus.  Each death is a tragedy that breaks our hearts and demands strong, urgent action.

“May it be a comfort to Congressman Wright’s wife Susan, their children Rachel, Derek and Justin, and their nine grandchildren, and the entire Wright family that so many mourn their loss and are praying for them at this sad time.”
