AAHOA Statement on Passing of U.S. Senator Bob Dole


ATLANTA, Ga., Dec. 6 – AAHOA President & CEO Ken Greene issued the following statement on the passing of U.S. Senator Bob Dole:

“America’s hotel owners are deeply saddened by the news of Sen. Robert Joseph Dole’s passing. In early 2021, Bob Dole revealed he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and passed early Sunday morning in his sleep. The longtime U.S. Senator from Kansas represented the conservative voice across America, and he stood for integrity and truth. He was a war hero, statesman, and someone who could reach across the aisle to get important things done. He was a great American, served in World War II, and had a lengthy political career. He was loved, respected, and made America a better place. He was a true patriot and a public servant and will not be forgotten. According to a statement from his family, at his death, at age 98, he had ‘served the United States of America faithfully for 79 years.’ AAHOA’s thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Elizabeth, and their whole family.”
