[Page H9382] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING QUILLA TALMADGE (Mr. PAYNE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. PAYNE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor East Orange City Councilwoman Quilla Talmadge. Councilwoman Talmadge has served the citizens of East Orange with distinction for 30 years. Her political career started as president of her third ward neighborhood. It continued with her active leadership as a member of her local Parent Teacher Association, local NAACP, and the National Council of Negro Women, among many others. She has won numerous awards for her community and church involvement. Recently, the New Jersey State League of Municipalities inducted her into the Elected Officials Hall of Fame. Councilwoman Talmadge is retiring from the city council this year, but she has left a legacy that will be remembered for many years to come. Madam Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me and the residents of East Orange in commending her service to her community. ____________________
