Spokane Mayor David Condon has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with President Donald Trump’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all public facilities be lowered until Friday, Oct. 18 in remembrance of U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, of Maryland.

“Congressman Cummings proudly represented Maryland’s 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives for 23 years,” said Mayor Condon. “We encourage anyone with a flag outside their home or business to join us in remembering Congressman Cummings. Flags should remain at half-staff until Friday, Oct. 18.”

Rep. Cummings passed away Thursday, Oct. 17, at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Baltimore. He was 68.
