U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham:

“To those who are celebrating, Happy Easter! In this season of new beginnings, I hope you will take the time to reflect on the many blessings in your life, as we come together to celebrate the teachings of peace, forgiveness, and reconciliation. So this holiday, however you celebrate, I want to wish you and your family a renewed season of health and prosperity. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.”

State Rep. Dennis Baxley:

“Today is Good Friday. A day that changed the course of history forever. On this day we remember Jesus, who laid down his life for us. But the story doesn’t end there. He changed the course of history. Three days later he conquered death and rose from the grave. Through his sacrifice we can enjoy eternal freedom. It’s Friday, but Sunday is coming! Join with me today in offering thanks for Christ’s sacrifice and rejoice with me in the eternal freedom that was paid for by his blood and resurrection. May you be surrounded by the love of your family this Easter.”

State Rep. Chris Latvala:

State House candidate Alex Barrio:

“Whether you’re celebrating Easter this Sunday, or enjoying a day of rest and relaxation, I hope you get the chance to spend time with friends and family, and to give thanks for all of our blessings in this great state. … Let us also keep in our thoughts and prayers all those in our community who have been forgotten by our government, be they veterans, the elderly, or any number of people who need help right in our local neighborhoods. May we find the strength to continue to fight with them in solidarity for a better world. I wish you and your loved ones a very Happy Easter weekend!”
