WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the passing of former Virginia Delegate Flora D. Crittenden:

“Newport News and the Commonwealth of Virginia have lost a fearless leader and public servant today with the passing of Flora Crittenden. She served our community in many ways as a teacher, guidance counselor, city councilwoman, and delegate in the Virginia General Assembly.
