Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement on the passing of Maryland State Delegate Hattie N. Harrison:
"I extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Delegate Hattie Harrison.
"I was honored to serve alongside Delegate Harrison for nearly 15 years and in that time I came to know her as one of our state's most thoughtful and dedicated legislators.
"Delegate Harrison was not just a committed lawmaker. She was also a passionate public servant who understood the importance of reaching back to bring others along. That spirit of giving back endeared her to constituents and colleagues alike. She will be sorely missed."
