“I am heartbroken to learn of the passing of a dear friend, colleague, and mentor, Representative Tony DeLuca. Tony has been a decades-long friend of me and my family, and I had tremendous respect for his advocacy for his home communities of Penn Hills and Verona. He was a dedicated leader during his 39 years in the House of Representatives, where he served as Democratic chair of the House Insurance Committee. I have long admired his tireless work to ensure every Pennsylvanian can have affordable health insurance, and I have valued our time together. Rest well, my friend. Allegheny County lost a mighty warrior today.”
