Sen. Mike Waugh, a York County Republican who died on Oct. 8, 2014, was honored today in speech by Rep. Stan Saylor, R-Red Lion, on the floor of the Pennsylvania House.
In the speech, Saylor traced his own history with Waugh to point out the various ways he said he felt Waugh differed from other lawmakers.
For one, he said, Waugh was involved in a lot of things for many years but never seemed to take the credit he was due.
One of those accomplishments was his instrumental work to pass a statewide building code by finding common ground between the extreme views on a prospective code. That, Saylor said, also illustrated his ability to unify people.
Saylor said Waugh made sure the entire York County delegation met every month to be a united front for York County’s needs. Those meetings continued, he said, despite the changing faces in the York County delegation over the years.
