Republican State Chair Deborah Billado Thanks St. Sen. Peg Flory
for Years of Service, Leadership
(Berlin) – GOP Chair Deb Billado’s statement on the retirement of Sen. Peg Flory:
“Yesterday, Peg Flory, Rutland’s great senator, announced that she will not be seeking re-election in November. Republicans and Vermonters of all political persuasions appreciate the boundless energy, hard work, seriousness of purpose, sharp intellect, keen skills, and sense of decorum Sen. Flory has brought to her twenty years of service in Montpelier and commitment to our state and its people. I, personally, will be sorry to see her go, but I know she has well earned a happy retirement with her husband and grandchildren.
“Sen. Flory is a Vermont success story, rising from humble beginnings to raise a wonderful family, become a lawyer, run a successful practice, and capping her career elected and reelected as a respected lawmaker first in the House and then in the Senate. She has been a stalwart conservative voice in Montpelier, focusing, as she stated in her retirement announcement, on ‘responsible state spending’ and ‘the fundamentals of government and prosperity for all Vermonters.’ On behalf of all Vermont Republicans, I thank Sen. Flory for her many years of service and leadership to our great state.”
