WASHINGTON, May 20/U.S. Newswire/ -- As residents of the District of Columbia, Hillary and I mourn the sudden and tragic loss of D.C. City Council Chairman John Wilson.

We know the love that John had for the District of Columbia will be remembered and cherished by all the city's residents as his service and achievements are profoundly appreciated.
