Remarks Prepared for Delivery by Congressman Jamie Raskin

June 11, 2021

To Dr. Dodd, Ms. O’ Neill, Parents, Grandparents, Uncles and Aunts, Brothers and Sisters, Teachers and Staff and Coaches, and, above all, to the stupefying, unbelievably amazing Walt Whitman Graduating Class of 2021:

I gave a commencement address last weekend over Zoom which was five minutes because of the awkwardness of virtual communication, so I’m delighted to be here in person and to resume the commencement tradition of the speaker actually taking the customary two hours and forty-five minutes for the address.

Just kidding. …

Rep. Jamie Raskin

Proudly representing MD’s 8th District. Member of Judiciary, Oversight, Rules and House Administration Committees.
