March 23, 2018 \\ Press Release

ROSWELL, GA - U.S. Representative Karen Handel today issued the following statement on the passing of former Georgia Governor and Senator Zell Miller.  Miller served as the 79th governor of Georgia from 1991 through 1999, and represented the State in the U.S. Senate from 2000 to 2005.

"Zell Miller lived a life filled with courage and the resolve to lead," Rep. Handel said.  He served our state and this country as a Marine, Mayor, State Senator, Lieutenant Governor, Governor, U.S. Senator, and regardless of title, a statesman.  All of us are better off for his life, and his service.  This is especially true for the 1.8 million Georgians - and counting - that have benefitted from higher education because of his HOPE scholarship program.  Steve and I send our condolences to Shirley and the entire Miller family."
