Statement from Mayor Madden on the Death of Congressman John Lewis

TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden released the following statement regarding the death of U.S. Congressman John Lewis:

our nation mourns the passing of Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights icon, dedicated public servant, and community leader.

“When future generations look back at the arc of our nation’s history, Congressman Lewis will be remembered as not only a leader and public servant, but as one of the most consequential voices of the 20th century. His life embodies the history and hard-fought progress of the Civil Rights Movement, a legacy that will inspire future leaders to take up the cause.
