Official Statement on the Passing of the Honorable Patrick J. Solano

(SCRANTON) – Chairman Lance Stange, Jr. issued the following statement:

“The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania lost a great leader today as the Honorable Patrick J. Solano has passed away.

“His passing marks the loss of another treasured member of the Greatest Generation, having served as a B-17 Flight Engineer in the Army Air Corps where he flew twenty-three bombing missions in World War II and was awarded numerous medals for bravery.

“After returning home, Pat began his public life as a School Director.  He went on to serve in several senior leadership positions within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and became a sought-after advisor to numerous policymakers from governors to local officials and everything in between.

“Pat dedicated his life to public service and was a hero to northeastern Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth, and the United States of America.  Really, he was the heart and soul of northeastern Pennsylvania. 

“Patrick J. Solano made a difference.”

Official Statement

Tens of thousands traveled to Washington to protest peacefully. That is their constitutional right. We don’t know who the violent people are yet but that will be determined. What we do know is we are a nation of laws and violence is wrong. I condemn this violence in the strongest possible terms and anyone who engaged in it should be held responsible. Period.

-Chairman Lance Stange Jr.
