FAREWELL, FRANCES FARLEY

It was indeed a sad day to learn of former State Senator Frances Farley's death late in January. Frances practiced truly genuine politics. While she never minced her words, she also never entered a political discussion with venom or
a desire to crush any-body. Rather, she entered every discussion with dignity and grace and knew her stuff. She never expected to win a battle because she never saw politics as a battle-- politics was a process of living and it required
humor and decency, passion and compassion.

She got to live and practice her politics true discourse-- before this day of supposed internet democracy and the normal shrillness that forever dominates today's political lecturing.


On the Senate floor Frances Farley could stop a rant and a rave with a simple well timed question, a polite request for an honest answer, a bit of a stare, and decent, well thought out arguments. Time after time, nearly 30 years back, many of us sat in the Senate gallery and marveled, never realizing just how unique Frances Farley was!
