Mr. DANNY K. DAVIS of Illinois. Mr. Speaker, congratulations to Ms.
Laura L. Hampton on the celebration of her Tremendous Community Service
and Attainment of her 80th Birthday.
Being publicly involved provides one and has provided me with the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the most wonderful and most delightful people. One such person has been, and continues to be Mrs. Laura L. Hampton, whom I met during the 1980s while serving as Alderman of the 29th ward, which was more than twenty years ago. Mrs. Hampton was a community leader and her family lived in the West Garfield Park community on West Wilcox Street. She has played every role that one can play in a community; a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an organizer, a leader, a treasurer, a President and whatever it takes to make a community function.
Mrs. Hampton has been and continues to be what is called a ``Community Activist'', that is, one who is actively involved in the affairs of community life, block, neighborhood, church, school, electoral process, and all that takes place in a community.
I congratulate Mrs. Hampton on the occasion of her 80th birthday Wish her well and thank her for all that she has done for the community including helping to elect me to Congress and President Barack Obama as President of the United States of America.
