Statement By U.S. Senator Ben Cardin On The Death Of Clarence Mitchell III

“I served for many years with Clarence Mitchell in the Maryland General Assembly and I saw first-hand his passion for civil rights and for making sure that his constituents got the services and resources that they needed.  He helped to pave the road for many African-American leaders who followed him, and I join the community in mourning his passing.”
