County Executive Statement On The Passing Of Speaker Michael Busch

His leadership, compassion and commitment to making a better Maryland will be sorely missed

LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobroks released the following statement on the passing of Maryland Speaker of the House, the Honorable Michael Busch:

“Speaker Busch spent more than 30 years advocating on behalf of working families and children across our state. As the longest serving Speaker in state history, he leaves behind a legacy that includes ensuring all Marylanders can earn a living wage, all children have access to healthcare and landmark funding for school systems across our state.

His leadership, compassion and commitment to making a better Maryland will be sorely missed, but all of those whom he coached and mentored during his more than three decades in the State House stand ready to carry the torch.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Cynthia, daughters Erin and Megan and his entire family during this difficult time."
