MONROE, GA Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) issued the following statement on the passing of former Georgia Governor and U.S. Senator Zell Miller:

“Today is a sad day for the State of Georgia as we mourn the loss of an icon who fearlessly advocated for our state,” Hice said. “We, as Georgians, are grateful for Zell Miller’s principled leadership and service to our state and our country. His public service and commitment to serving the people of Georgia remains unparalleled. He was a trailblazer and role model for many who would follow in his footsteps. It is with great sadness and respect that I extend my deepest condolences to the Miller family, especially his wife, Shirley, his children and grandchildren, and his many friends. I hope it is a comfort to his family and friends that so many people share their tremendous loss and are praying for them in this difficult time.”
