Statement by SEA President Bill Valdez on Passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings

“SEA stands with the federal community and the nation in mourning the loss of Rep. Elijah Cummings. As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Cummings has been a consistent advocate for the federal community. Chairman Cummings has defended our merit based civil service system and worked with groups across the aisle to create a more fair, equal system for all federal employees. His oversight and expertise has undeniably made this country stronger. We send our condolences to Rep. Cummings’ family during this hard time. The Chairman’s legacy as a civil rights and civil service champion will have a lasting impact.”
