DCCC Chairman Israel Statement on Passing of Wilma Simms
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement on the passing of Wilma Simms, who worked at the DCCC for 13 years.
“With the passing of Wilma Simms, we mourn the loss of our dear friend at the DCCC. For nearly 13 years Ms. Wilma was the face of the DCCC and she loyally and steadfastly helped our caucus and our cause. She meant so much more to the many of us who grew to know her. Every day she brought her warmth and personality to everyone from Democratic leadership to the DCCC intern.
“Ms. Wilma loved the work she did here up until the day she recently retired. We will always remember Ms. Wilma for her indomitable spirit and bright smile. On behalf of the DCCC and the entire Democratic family, our thoughts and prayers are with her family in this time of grief.”
