Dennis Kucinich, D-OH
"Representative Payne entered public life in 1972 when he was elected to the Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Ten years later he was elected to the Newark Municipal Council where he served three terms. In 1988, Donald became the Representative of New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District, and the first African-American to represent New Jersey in Congress. As Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, he was a relentless defender and supporter of education related issues. He was an inspiration and a friend."
The Passing Of Representative Donald Payne March 16, 2012
Howard Berman, D-CA
"The entire staff and board of directors of World Food Program USA mourn the passing of Representative Donald Payne of New Jersey. Representative Payne was a tireless champion on behalf of the world’s poorest, hungriest people, and his presence and efforts within the U.S. Congress will be missed. As Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Africa, Representative Payne played a key role in pushing forward U.S. policies to respond to the protracted crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan, as well as across the African continent. He was one of five members of Congress to accompany President Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton on a tour of six African nations, and he headed a presidential mission aimed at finding solutions to the political and humanitarian crisis in Rwanda. Due to his record of outstanding service, Representative Payne was chosen by President George W. Bush to serve for two terms as a congressional delegate to the United Nations from 2003 2007. Representative Payne travelled many times to countries in the worst throes of humanitarian crises, lending his voice and wielding his influence to help those people most in need. His many years of steadfast support, dedication, and hard work have improved the lives of millions of people in Africa, the United States, and across the globe. He will be remembered for all that he has contributed to the rights, well being, dignity and spirit of people across the world. He was a true humanitarian hero."

Representative Payne‘s public service record was also dedicated to helping people through his volunteer work. His involvement with the Newark YMCA and Boy’s and Girl’s Club, showed his passion for helping children."
