Remembering Tubbs Jones

The National Jewish Democratic Council is calling Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D-Ohio) “an outstanding advocate for Cleveland and issues important to the Jewish community” who “will be deeply missed.”

Tubbs Jones, whose district in eastern Cleveland and the city’s suburbs was heavily Jewish, died Wednesday of a brain aneurysm at the age of 58. She was the first African American woman to represent Ohio in Congress.
