Governor Cuomo Directs Flags to Half-Staff

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff in honor of Congressman Elijah Cummings, former member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Maryland's 7th congressional district, who died October 17. Flags will remain at half-staff from October 18 until interment.

"Congressman Cummings was the real deal," Governor Cuomo said. "He was passionate and eloquent, accomplishing so much in Washington. I am thankful to have seen his energy in action during our time together in Washington. We lost him too soon, but his memory and contributions to our great country and the State of Maryland will be forever remembered."
