Special reception honoring Congressman John Lewis

On two occasions, I joined Congressman John Lewis in Selma, Alabama to walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge to commemorate the anniversary of the Selma-to-Montgomery March for voting rights, which was led by a young John Lewis and some 600 civil rights marchers in March, 1965.

There, at the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the Alabama State Police unleashed a brutal attack on the marchers. John Lewis was beaten and nearly died. Marching over that bridge with Congressman John Lewis some 50 years later with my wife, Lisa, and children, Patrick and Molly, was one of the greatest honors of my life. John Lewis is a civil rights icon, and our nation is stronger because of him. I am proud to call him a friend, and honored he is coming to Worcester to support my re-election efforts. I hope you can join us for this special event.
