It was with extreme sadness when I received a call this morning about the death of Meredith Chapman. While details are vague, there was a murder-suicide at her home in Bryn Mawr, PA yesterday. 17 hours ago she posted on Facebook about accepting a job at Villanova University. I endorsed Meredith when she was against State Senator David Sokola two years ago and she came within five percentage points in the November 2016 election.
Meredith was best known for her time as Director of Digital Communications at University of Delaware. She resigned to take the new position at Villanova as an Assistant Vice President.
Meredith was young and full of life. Had she won, I have no doubt she would have become a vibrant voice at Legislative Hall. Out with the old and in with the new. Sadly, Meredith’s voice will never be able to create new laws in our state. I can’t imagine how her husband is dealing with this as well as her friends and family. No one ever wants to receive that call.
Please keep them all in your prayers and thoughts today.
