Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) released the following statement on the passing of her good friend and former Ward 6 Councilmember Sharon Ambrose.

“With the passing of former Councilmember Sharon Ambrose, the District of Columbia has lost one of its most productive elected officials, and I have lost a friend and the councilwoman who represented me for many years.  Sharon fought with great effectiveness simultaneously for Ward 6 and for her city, and she elegantly fought her way back from illness.  Sharon’s memorable service is on my mind as I send my sincere condolences to her husband, Michael, and to her family.”
