VTGOP STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF DON MILNE

Montpelier, VT –  The Vermont Republican family mourns the loss of a dedicated public servant, community leader, trusted advisor and loyal friend.

Don Milne — longtime Clerk of the Vermont House of Representatives, former House member, selectboard member and father of 2014 Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Milne — passed away yesterday at the age of 81.

Those who had the pleasure of knowing and working with Don knew him to be a man of both quiet humility and resilient confidence.  His advice and rulings as Clerk of the House of Representatives were based on deep knowledge, experience and inherent wisdom.  His steady presence and trusted opinions often calmed storms in the deliberative process.

We are very thankful for the dedicated service of Don Milne and for the outstanding example of citizenship he displayed for all of us.

We extend our deepest condolences to the entire Milne family.
