Marcia L. Fudge


Marcia Fudge, the U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 11th congressional district, was the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus from 2013 to 2014. Prior to this, she served as the Mayor of Warrensville Heights, a middle-class and primarily African-American suburb in Cleveland. Following the death of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Fudge was selected as her replacement. This assured that she would be elected in that district. Fudge is also a past president of Delta Sigma Theta sorority, serving from 1996 to 2000, and is co-chair of the sorority’s National Social Action Commission. (Photo: William B.
