Colchester has lost a dear friend. Linda Orange has been a pillar of the Colchester community and the state of Connecticut for over two decades. She was a model of public service, leadership, and kindness. Anyone who was fortunate enough to know Linda will remember her infectious laugh, sharp wit, and deep dedication to improving the lives of those around her. She did just that.
There are too many achievements, lives impacted, debates had, fights won and lost to name when it comes to Linda. She led an extraordinary life of service and made our world a better place. We are lucky to have had her as our representative, and friend. Bye, bye now, Linda, and thank you.
