“Our entire state has lost a true champion and genuine leader today.  When it came to making a difference and doing the right thing, Mary didn’t see party or differences, she would work with anyone on the issues important to her community.  And she did it with kindness.  Thanks to Mary’s passion, Washington’s children are safer, our health care system is better and the Yakima Valley has benefited from her advocacy and success.   My thoughts are with her family and friends, she will be missed.”
