Beyer Statement On The Passing Of Congressman A. Donald McEachin

Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) today issued the following statement:

“The loss of Donald McEachin is heartbreaking.

“We have been friends for many years, and in all the time I’ve known him he has been a fighter. He fought for families, for children, and for the needy. As a public servant he fought for his community and his constituents. Even as he became one of the leading champions for environmental justice in Congress, he was fighting a quiet, difficult battle with cancer.

“Donald McEachin was a great son of Virginia, and his absence will leave a hole that cannot be repaired. I send my condolences to all who loved him, especially his wife Colette and their children.”
