Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District released the following statement today on the passing of Assemblywoman Peggy Pierce: 
“I had the pleasure and honor of serving with Peggy in the Legislature, but she was more than just a colleague; she was also a dear friend,” said Titus. “Peggy was a respected leader and a principled lawmaker, champion for quality education and a passionate advocate for workers’ rights. Peggy will long be remembered for her steadfast work on behalf of the people of Nevada. She never wavered when it came to standing up for the little guy and she put her work for others ahead of her own well-being. She will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. My thoughts and prayers are with Jon Sasser, her family, and friends during this difficult time.”
