Statement on the Passing of Michael Busch, Speaker of the House of Delegate

April 9, 2019

On April 7th Michael Busch, long-time Speaker of the House of Delegates died. Inspired by his mother, Speaker Busch was a staunch defender of women and will be remembered as a mentor and friend to women in the House of Delegates. During his tenure, Speaker Busch appointed a record number of women to leadership positions, including a majority of the Chairs (4/7) and the Vice Chairs (4/7) of the House Standing Committees. We offer our deepest condolences to his wife, daughters and the rest of his family in this time of bereavement.
