HCCMC Statement on the Passing of Congressman Elijah E. Cummings
October 17, 2019. The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Montgomery County shares in the sadness of the news that Elijah won't be coming back to the Hill. He passed away today at 68 years of age.
Elijah Cummings was a powerhouse on the Hill. He represented his constituency and upheld high standards while working "among sharks" on Capitol Hill. He was a man who earned the respect that we all had for him. The Hispanic Business community will feel his absence as he was an avid believer in diversity and the economic benefit of small businesses, especially minority small businesses. It is a great loss for America.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and colleagues.
