WASHINGTON, DC -- "The untimely and unexpected death of Rep. Julian Dixon is a tragedy for this Congress and our country. It is a fitting honor that today we are publicly celebrating his first-class record of public service.

"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."
