Malloy and Blumenthal on the passing of Dr. Mel (releases)

Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman today released the following statement on the passing of Dr. Mel Goldstein.

“Dr. Mel was more than a meteorologist – with his charming character, warm smile and friendly personality, he became an icon in Connecticut and was loved by many. Over the years, he entered the homes of millions of residents and in many ways became a member of our own families. He dedicated his working life to ensuring that the residents of Connecticut were prepared for whatever tumultuous weather system may approach, and for that we are forever thankful. In true Dr. Mel fashion, he always handled himself with grace and dignity. We send our thoughts and condolences to his family, friends and staff at WTNH. He will be missed.”

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement today on the passing of Dr. Mel Goldstein:
“Dr. Mel was a dear friend and great public servant, who made every day brighter regardless of the weather. He committed his life to making others happier, and bringing sunshine into their lives through acts of kindness, small and large. He faced both life and death with profound and powerful grace, caring, and courage. I will miss him as a friend and model of humanity and humor.”
