Mr. Speaker:

As a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, I am pleased to join my colleagues in the consideration of H.R. 3468, which names a postal facility in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, after Dr. Clifford Bell Jones.

H.R. 3468, which was introduced by Rep. G. K. Butterfield (NC), on August 4, 2007, was reported from the Oversight Committee on August 4, 2007, by voice vote.  This measure which has been cosponsored by 12 members has the support of the entire North Carolina congressional delegation.

Dr. Clifford Bell Jones was a made a huge impact on the community in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, as both a great Dentist, and invested humanitarian. Professionally he practiced general dentistry for 66 years in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and received a Special Recognition Award for loyalty and service to the dental profession from the Old North State Dental Society. In addition, he was appointed to serve on the Elizabeth City - Pasquotank County School Board.  He served as a Deacon at Corner Stone Missionary Baptist Church in Elizabeth City, and was a Trustee Emeritus of Elizabeth City State University, a historically Black college.  He was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the City Council of Elizabeth City for his services on the City's Human Relations Committee. This bill honors this man's dedication and loyalty to his community.

Mr. Speaker, I urge the swift passage of this bill.
