Statement from Governor Phil Scott on Passing of Rep. Robert Forguites
Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Vermont State Representative Robert Forguites.
“I am sad to learn of the sudden passing of Rep. Robert Forguites. I join with Bob’s fellow legislators and constituents in mourning this loss. Bob will be remembered for his dedication to the people of Springfield—for both his many years in local government and for his time in the Vermont House of Representatives—as well as his service for all Americans during his tenure in the U.S. Army. In the State House, Bob always put his constituents first and was known for his independent voice. His years of service are greatly appreciated, and my thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.”
