Van Hollen Statement on the Passing of Barbara O’Malley

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement on the passing of Barbara O’Malley, mother of former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley: 

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Barbara O’Malley. I will always remember being greeted by Mrs. O’s smile and her cheery hello as I’d come into Senator Mikulski’s office – it never failed to brighten my day. Her warmth and wit will be dearly missed by so many, and her years of dedicated public service to the people of Maryland will not be forgotten. Katherine and I extend our sympathy to the O’Malley family at this difficult time.”
