Statement from Mayor Bowser on the Passing of Elijah Cummings
(Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued the following statement on the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings (MD-07), Chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
“Elijah Cummings was a fighter for Baltimore, our region, and the nation. He never shied away from standing up for that which is right. The Congressman holds a special place in the hearts of Washingtonians – not only as an alumnus of Howard University, where he served as Student Government President – but for helping us forge ahead on our path to DC Statehood. His work to make every community he touched a better place is one we should all emulate, and we know he will rest in peace and in power.”
