Capps Statement on the Passing of Selma Rubin
WASHINGTON – Today Congresswoman Lois Capps (CA-23) released the following statement in response to the passing of Selma Rubin.
Today, Santa Barbara lost one of its true heroes, and I have lost a dear friend and mentor. Selma was a shining example of a woman with the enthusiasm and passion to excel and the vision to turn her dreams into reality. Her tireless efforts have made our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family. I know of few people who gave as much to their community as Selma did. Her lifetime of service – fighting offshore oil drilling, preserving the Gaviota Coast, or encouraging women to get involved in their government – will live on for generations in the countless people she helped along the way. I will deeply miss her friendship, her wisdom, and her enthusiasm for life.”
