So you can see I posted a Rogues Gallery of all the Representatives who voted against marriage equality. Some of the names on the list rang bells for me.
So I did some digging and found out a number of them had graduated from LaSalle Academy, same as I had. In fact one I definitely knew of as he graduated the year before me. Others graduated when I began high school.
So I’m scanning through the 38 Senators now. I figure lets identify those with whom I share an alma mater. It could be useful.
Sen. William J. Conley Jr. is on the Board of Regents of LaSalle. Now as far as I recall you had to be a grad of the school to serve so it’s likely he is though his bio doesn’t mention that.
Sen. Daniel DaPonte graduated from LaSalle Academy in 1996
Sen. Paul W. Fogarty graduated LaSalle Academy, no year indicated.
Sen. Dominick J. Ruggerio – graduated from LaSalle Academy in 1966
Sen. William A. Walaska – graduated LaSalle Academy, no year provided.
That’s five out of thirty eight, or 13% of the Senate are affiliate with and/or graduated from LaSalle Academy.
What’s more interesting as I went through lots of schools starting with Saint, Bishop etc. in there.
