Statement of Prosecutor Kym Worthy on the Passing of Congressman John Conyers

"From being summoned to his Congressional offices in Detroit and Washington at a moment's notice, to always taking my meeting requests, to conversing with him in the hallways where our children went to school, Congressman John Conyers was a true Detroit icon and consummate civil servant. He never hesitated or ignored calls for help, solicitations for advice, or pleas for resources over the years. I will always remember him for how he lived, worked, helped, and persevered."
