The US Travel Association released a statement regarding the recent passing of former Congressman William D. Delahunt (D-MA) on March 30th.

“The US travel community mourns the passing of one of its great champions in Congress, Bill Delahunt. When the United States struggled to rebuild international inbound travel in the decade following the 9/11 terrorist attack, Congressman Delahunt led the effort to restore America as the world’s top travel destination. His vision led to bipartisan legislation creating Brand USA, America’s travel marketing organization, and millions of new visitors to the United States benefiting every region of this country. The travel industry is deeply grateful for his leadership and thoughtful vision for improving America’s economy and diplomacy.”

William David Delahunt (July 18, 1941 – March 30, 2024) was an American lawyer and politician from Massachusetts. A member of the Democratic Party, he served in the US House of Representatives representing Massachusetts’s 10th congressional district from 1997 to 2011. Delahunt did not seek re-election in 2010, and left Congress in January 2011.

William Delahunt died Saturday at his home in Quincy, Massachusetts, at the age of 82.
