Statement from Mayor Bowser on the Passing of Mark Plotkin

Sunday, September 22, 2019

(Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser issued the following statement on the passing of long-time DC political analyst Mark Plotkin.

“I am saddened to hear of the passing of Mark Plotkin. Mark embodied DC politics, cared deeply about this city, and was an unrelenting advocate for securing voting rights for our residents and for DC statehood. Minted in a time before social media, Mark was never one to mince words and offered fair, poignant perspectives across media outlets. In particular, tuning into Mark’s show was must-listen radio. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mark and all who knew and loved him.”
