Sen. Whitehouse Statement on Susan Farmer Passing

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the statement below regarding the death of former Rhode Island Secretary of State, Susan Farmer:

“Susan Farmer was a courageous and kind person. As the first woman to hold statewide office in Rhode Island, as an indomitable cancer patient, as the successful head of our public television station, she set a shining example for all of us in public service, and she did so with great generosity of spirit. She prevailed in tough environments without losing her poise or decency, and she will be missed.”
