    LEE of California asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. LEE of California. Mr. Speaker, in addition to saluting and congratulating our colleague and friend, Congressman Mel Watt, I want to rise and salute our friend Nikki Mayes tonight.

    Nikki, I just have to say to you first of all, I was a staffer for Ron Dellums when I first met Nikki, and I know tonight Ron would want to salute you, congratulate you, and thank you so much for your 36 years of service. So on behalf of Ron Dellums and myself, let me just say what a great role model you have been for all of us.

    I also want to thank you for helping us navigate this great institution. We will always remember you. We will cherish your friendship. And I want to say to you that, as you start this new chapter of your life, I hope you get some rest and I hope you have a lot of fun.

    Thank you, again, Nikki.
