Today, Maine GOP Chair Dr. Demi Kouzounas made the following statement upon this weekend's passing of a true Maine icon, Don Collins:
"Our hearts go out to Senator Collins, her family, and all those who knew Don Collins and his dedication to his family, community and Maine.
Married to his lovely wife, Pat, for seventy years, Don also admirably served Caribou and our state as a sincere and dedicated public servant, while also playing an important role in Aroostook County's economy.
An amazing life like his is too rare. Maine needs more men like Don."
