Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge
Congresswoman Fudge is now serving in her third consecutive full term; she was elected in a special election in November 2008, re-elected in the general election that was held that same month, and most recently in 2012. She is highly respected by her congressional colleagues for her insight, wisdom, and honesty. She was elected unanimously in 2012 to serve as Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus in the 113th Congress. As a dedicated public servant, she begins each morning with a firm promise "to do the people’s work." That simple philosophy defines this Congresswoman of substance and character who always keeps her promise.
Congresswoman Fudge is past National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Professionally, she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from The Ohio State University and a law degree from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University.
