Governor Markell Orders Flags Lowered on June 17

DOVER – With the passing of former State Representative Thomas E. Brady Jr. on Tuesday, June 10, Governor Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities be flown at half-staff on Tuesday, June 17, as a mark of respect for Representative Brady and his service to Delaware.

Representative Brady served in the Delaware House from 1979-1985, representing the 6th district. While serving in the General Assembly, he had several signature achievements including securing funding for the Augustine Cutoff bridge repairs and passage of the Financial Center for Development Act which led to the expansion of the credit card banking industry in Delaware.

Representative Brady was interred in All Saints Cemetery in Wilmington on Saturday, June 14.
