Press Release

NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Congressman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the passing of former Virginia Congressman Herbert Harris II:

“I was saddened to learn of the passing of former Congressman Herb Harris last week.  Virginia has lost a dedicated public servant who helped transform Northern Virginia into one of the most important economic regions of our Commonwealth.  His tenacious advocacy for civil rights, the poor, public transportation, our military, and our federal employees set a standard in our congressional delegation.  My thoughts and prayers are with Congressman Harris’ family during this time of bereavement.”
