Montpelier, VT – The Vermont Republican Party expresses its deep sympathies to the family and friends of Lola Aiken upon her passing yesterday. To this day, our Party is stronger because of her influence and example.

Together with her husband, U.S. Senator and Governor George Aiken, Lola Aiken worked tirelessly for the benefit of Vermont and Vermonters. Their common legacy is one of people over politics — and partnership over partisanship. Together, they will remain a deep rooted part of our state’s history and examples of the greatest tradition of Vermont Republicans.

We extend our most sincere thanks for their honored service to our Party and our state.
