Senator Collins’ Statement on Passing of Maine Representative Gifford

Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins issued this statement on the passing of Representative Jeffery Allen Gifford (R-Lincoln):


“Jeff was a man of many talents, and he generously used his time and expertise to give back to his neighbors in Lincoln.  Whether it was through his service in the State Legislature, on the Town Council, or as a football coach, Jeff constantly strived to make the community a better place.  I enjoyed working with him, particularly on issues impacting Maine’s agriculture and forest products industries.  I send my heartfelt condolences to his wife, Irene, as well as to his entire family.”
