Secretary Perdue Statement Regarding the Death of Zell Miller

(Washington, D.C., March 23, 2018) – U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Zell Miller:

“Mary and I are saddened to learn of the death of our friend, Zell Miller. A son of the mountains of north Georgia, he dedicated his life to this country, and to Georgia, as a veteran and faithful public servant. His legacy as a state legislator, lieutenant governor, governor, and U.S. senator, particularly in expanding educational opportunities for Georgia students, will resonate for generations to come. We have no doubt that in Heaven, the Marine is having a feisty debate with some of his old friends right now. Mary and I are praying for Shirley, the entire Miller family, and Zell’s many friends. May he rest in peace.”
