DPVA Statement on Death of Former Senator Patsy Ticer

RICHMOND, Va. – Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker today issued the following statement on the death of former State Senator Patsy Ticer, who also served as mayor of Alexandria:

“As the first woman to serve as mayor of Alexandria, Patsy Ticer was a trailblazer. She served on the Alexandria City Council in the 1980s, at a time when too few women chose to enter the political arena. Patsy will long be remembered as a quiet but effective voice for children, for her constituents, for her city and for the Commonwealth. On behalf of our entire Democratic family, we extend our heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved her.”
