Today, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA-03) released the below statement after being sworn in as a member of the 118th Congress:

“I’m deeply honored to serve as Southwest Washington’s independent voice in Congress and excited to finally get to work after days of delay.

I promised that I would put country over party and people over politics to get the job done for our community, and that’s exactly what I’ll do.

Over the next two years, I’ll fight to protect our rights, defend our democracy, and level the playing field for working families. I’m here to pass a right-to-repair bill, rebuild jobs in the woods, invest in career and technical education, and cut red tape for small businesses. My bipartisan team and I will also deliver top-notch constituent services to make sure every Southwest Washingtonian can thrive.

I want to thank the people of the Third District for entrusting me with this great responsibility. Let’s get to work.”
