Statement by U.S. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) on the Death of Rep. Julian Dixon (D-CA)
"Rep. Julian C. Dixon of California represented one of our country's most complex urban areas, the Crenshaw and West Los Angeles neighborhoods of Los Angeles. As a Representative of New York City, I often admired Rep. Dixon's immense understanding for issues facing urban communities: civil rights, government services, equal opportunity, housing, public education.
"Rep. Dixon's passing is a terrible loss. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this sad time."
