Longtime Texas Capitol staffer Susie Buda passed away

Her sister wrote on Facebook "injuries from her second aneurysm were just too severe to survive. The doctors tell us that she never had a chance this time...Today she was taken off life support and became a hero for the people whose lives she will save with her ultimate gift." She most recently worked at TTARA. Thoughts and prayers with her family tonight.

Susie Buda’s former boss, Texas Senate Finance Chair Jane Nelson said:

“Susie was a loyal, dedicated staffer who loved the Senate, where she served admirably for years and provided invaluable expertise on education and tax policies. Beloved throughout the Capitol, Susie made a positive impact in the lives of all Texans. She was smart, had a dynamic personality and a big heart. There are many hearts breaking over this devastating news, including ours at Team Nelson. We are praying for Susie's family, loved ones and everyone in our Capitol family who is mourning.”

Her current employer, the Texas Taxpayers and Research Association issued this statement on Sunday:

“We are devastated by the passing of Susie Buda yesterday. Susie was an incredible joy and talent, and the world is less today without her. She developed into one of the best staffers in the Senate, and we were thrilled with the time we had with her. We loved her energy, her wit, her enthusiasm, and her intellectual curiosity. If Susie considered you a friend, you were blessed. Our hearts go out to Dan and all the Strzelec and Buda Families. We share your pain, but please know that we share our love with you, and with all those that Susie touched.”
