WASHINGTON, DC – Today, after the passing of former Rhode Island Secretary of State Susan L. Farmer, U.S. Senator Jack Reed issued the following statement:

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Susan Farmer, who was a political pioneer, a dedicated public servant, and a successful CEO.  She gave her time and leadership to so many non-profits and community organizations throughout Rhode Island and was a real inspiration to so many.  She will be deeply missed, but not forgotten.”
