FLINT, Mich. — Mayor Karen Weaver released the following statement after the October 17, 2019 announcement of the death of Congressman Elijah Cummings:

“The world has suffered a great loss, this country is in deep mourning, and our government has lost a true patriot and a drum major for justice. When our city needed a champion, he fought to get answers and justice for us. As a public servant, he led a life that we would hope those that we elect would lead, one with honor for this country and integrity for its people. We will never be able to truly thank him for his service. May his life be a banner for all who wish to answer the call to public service.”
