Statement from Mayor Bowser on the Passing of Ed Potillo

Thursday, August 10, 2017

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Today, Mayor Bowser released the following statement on the passing of Ed Potillo:

“I am saddened to hear of the passing of Ed Potillo, a native Washingtonian who grew up in Ward 4's Brightwood neighborhood, graduated from St. John's College High School, and later loved serving his neighbors in Ward 7. He was a mentor to many people - young and some a bit older - who, like him, wanted to make their neighborhood, ward, and city a better place. We stood shoulder to shoulder for statehood and DC values last summer in Philadelphia and many times around the District. Ed will be greatly missed, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and the Ward 7 community.”
