Towns ‘Regrets’ Rangel’s Leave of Absence

Rep. Ed Towns of Brooklyn, who has been in office since 1983 and whose district is solidly Democratic and who has no opponents on the horizon, released a statement of support for Rep. Charlie Rangel.


“I regret the fact that this occurred, but I know that has not changed the fact that when you go to him for information, or support for an issue, or to get people to come together to make things happen, or provide leadership for the New York Delegation, there is nobody better than Charles B. Rangel.”
