Wednesday, March 16, 2016

In response to President Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Brian Garland to the United States Supreme Court, Mayor Muriel Bowser released the following statement:

“As chief judge of the US Court of Appeals, Judge Garland has served ably here in the District of Columbia, and has earned respect that transcends party and politics. I stand with the President, and I urge the Congress to move Judge Garland forward through a fair and judicious process. Just like the residents of the District of Columbia, Judge Garland deserves a vote in the Congress.”
