“I was truly saddened to learn of the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings, but I was proud to have had the opportunity to have met such an amazing public servant. Congressman Cummings spent his entire life working for his community and for the betterment of all Americans. He held this nation to the highest of standards and insisted that we stand up and fight for our rights. He worked tirelessly in his efforts to hold those who needed to be held accountable, accountable.
He was and will forever remain a champion for justice, equality, and dignity for all Americans. His impact on the city of Baltimore and this nation will never be forgotten. He was a ‘True Freedom Fighter’, and his presence as an honorable man, a role model, a congressman, and a community activist will always be remembered, and his presence will be missed.” — PA Representative Joanna McClinton 191st District
