    WASHINGTON D.C.– Please attribute the following statement to CTIA® President and CEO, Meredith Attwell Baker.

    “America has lost one of its most renowned legislators. Congressman John Lewis was a remarkable leader and champion for Civil Rights and equality, and he embodied all the ideals of a selfless, dedicated public servant. During his 33 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, he fought to enact laws that improved the quality of life for Georgians and for all Americans.

    We extend our thoughts to his family and loved ones. May his legacy live on through those inspired by his leadership and service.”
