Elijah Cummings, R.I.P.

No one should take any joy in the passing of a public servant like Elijah Cummings but, with America being the way that it is now, I’m sure that some are.  That’s the sickness of our partisan warfare.  We too often forget that those on the other side are as capable of being a good and worthy public servant as those on our side.

Elijah Cummings was a man who was working for the people the Baltimore before I was even born.  He served for 14 years in the House of Delegates and 23 in the U.S. House.  His constituents loved him and he never stopped fighting for them.  You may or may not have agreed with his politics (and I certainly didn’t) but he was a man who did what a congressperson is supposed to do.  At a time when so many members view their time in the House as just a stepping stone to higher office, Elijah Cummings served his constituents.

Elijah Cummings will be difficult to replace.  Hopefully, whoever does replace him, will follow his example.
