WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the passing of Bill Ward, the former Mayor of Chesapeake:

“It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of former Chesapeake Mayor Bill Ward. Bill spent his entire life dedicated to the Chesapeake and Hampton Roads community. As Chesapeake’s longest serving mayor, and first and only black mayor, Bill is leaving behind a powerful legacy of bringing about positive change for the city of Chesapeake.
