Statement on the Death of CT Rep. Quentin "Q" Williams

Washington, D.C. - NewDEAL CEO Debbie Cox Bultan released the following statement on the death of NewDEAL Leader State Representative Quentin "Q" Williams (Middletown, CT), who was killed in a car crash overnight.

“On behalf of the NewDEAL community, our hearts are broken over the tragic passing of State Representative Quentin "Q" Williams. Q epitomized everything NewDEAL stands for and, more importantly, the qualities that our country needs in its leaders. As a passionate public servant who made progress his top priority and was determined to fight for good governance that improved everyone’s quality of life, Q contributed so much to his state and made an impact on so many people in our network. It’s clear from the tributes pouring in today that he accomplished all of this with kindness, class, and humility. We are devastated by his passing and recommit to fighting for the opportunities that he dedicated his life to creating for everyone in his state. Our thoughts are with his wife Carrissa, their family, our Connecticut NewDEALers, and all whose lives he touched.”
