|RESOLUTION AS INTRODUCED||2007-2008|
By Senators Condos and McCormack,
S.R. 24. Senate resolution relating to Calvin Coolidge.
Whereas, Vermont’s favorite son, Calvin Coolidge, was Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, and
Whereas, as such he presided over the state Senate, and
Whereas, his responsibilities included ruling senators out of order when they breached decorum, and
Whereas, one day a senator, in session and in chamber, yelled “Go to hell” at a colleague, and
Whereas, the offended party asked of Coolidge, “Mr. President might I have a ruling?”, and
Whereas, Coolidge answered “You don’t have to go”, now therefore be it
That Calvin Coolidge was a really cool guy.
President of the Senate
David A. Gibson
