Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On Speaker Shap Smith

I spoke with Speaker Smith today and conveyed the heartfelt hopes, wishes and prayers that Marcelle and I have for him, Melissa and their family.

Throughout his career in public service, Shap has worked to keep his priorities in order, striving to do the right things, for the right reasons.  That has been a mark of his character, and a reason for the deep respect he has earned across our state.  In this difficult decision, he has done that again.
