Honor and Respect


As we prepare for the Democratic National Convention, I cannot help but think about the late U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones who died Wednesday from a brain aneurysm.

Rep. Tubbs Jones, the first African American woman elected to Congress from Ohio, was a fighter. She was an outstanding public servant who fought for equality and justice. Rep. Tubbs Jones was known for her legal mind, debating skills, and most of all her smile.

I hope she is not forgotten this week. Funeral arrangements are scheduled for after the convention.

Thank you for giving so much of yourself.
