House Democrats Deeply Saddened at Passing of Former Colleague Roz McGee

House Democratic Caucus Leader Brian King expressed his deepest condolences on the loss of Rosalind McGee, former Representative and his direct predecessor of District 28.

He said, “This is a great loss for the state of Utah. Roz was a champion for children through her continued service. She has always been someone I looked up to, someone I respected greatly. In the world of politics, elected officials come and go. Few are able to make the impression that Roz made on her community, and on me. When I was elected to succeed her, I knew I had big shoes to fill.”

One of her more notable achievements was helping to establish Voices for Utah Children. She served 13 years as its first director and was a forceful and effective advocate for children’s issues in Utah. She will be greatly missed by current and former members of the caucus.
