Condolences to State Senator Jeff Klein on Passing of his Mother

Albany-based reporter Nick Reisman reporting on StateofPolitics.com writes:

“Marilyn Klein, the mother of Senate Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein, has died, a spokeswoman for the IDC said. 

Klein, 77, was a former female Democratic district leader for the 80th Assembly district. She died on Saturday, said IDC spokeswoman Candice Giove. 

Jeff Klein, a Bronx Democrat, was first elected to the Senate in 2005 and formed the breakaway IDC faction in 2011 which has been an independent voting bloc in the chamber and was aligned with the Republican conference in a majority coalition.”

Our condolences go out to Sen. Klein and members of the Klein family.
