VERMONT REPUBLICAN PARTY CHAIR DEBORAH BILLADO'S STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF FORMER FIRST LADY BARBARA BUSH
Berlin, VT - Vermont Republican Party Chair Deborah Billado made the following statement on the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush:
“Yesterday, we lost a tireless advocate and an inspiration to the millions of Americans she touched. Barbara Bush personified what it meant to serve boldly. Whether in her role as First Lady of the United States, Second Lady for eight years while her beloved husband George H.W. Bush was Vice President under President Reagan, mother of President George W. Bush, matriarch of the Bush family extending four generations, or championing family literacy, Mrs. Bush set an example of thoughtfulness and compassion.
Mrs. Bush was a truly remarkable woman who led with class and honesty. Myself and the Vermont Republican Party extend our deepest condolences to the entire Bush family."
