Montpelier, Vt. - Governor Phil Scott today issued the following statement:

“I am saddened to learn of the passing of Representative John Palasik this morning. Rep. Palasik was a committed public servant, devoting his career to helping others, whether it was in the U.S. Army, Vermont National Guard, Milton Police Department, Milton Rescue, as a State Representative, or the many other local roles he performed.
