THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Throughout his illustrious career in the United States Congress, Representative Louis Stokes has been a champion of America's finest values. He has worked tirelessly to better the lives of our children and our veterans, and has stood steadfast in an effort to bring our country together amid all of our diversity to build a stronger community.
Representative Stokes has been a true advocate for the people of Cleveland and for all Americans who support giving people the tools they need to make the most of their own lives. He has served our country from the bottom of his heart and his retirement after three decades of dedicated service will be a loss felt by all.
