Senator Collins’ Statement on Passing of David Flanagan

Bangor, ME—U.S. Senator Susan Collins issued this statement on the passing of David Flanagan:


“David’s passing is a tremendous loss not only for his wife Kaye and their family members, but also for the State of Maine.  His life was defined by countless contributions to his fellow Mainers and to our country in his many roles as chief counsel to a Maine Governor,  CEO of Maine’s largest utility, counsel for a U.S. Senate committee investigation, and president of the University of Southern Maine.  No matter the challenge, David would use his leadership talents to make a positive difference.  David’s and his wife, Kaye’s, philanthropy also improved the lives of many Mainers and will be a part of his lasting legacy.  David was a treasured friend, and I shall miss him enormously.”
