Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement upon being administered the oath of office to serve his seventh term in the House of Representatives:

"Today is a day in which all members of Congress renew their promise to the American people and their constituents- a promise to continually work to put our nation and the citizens we are sworn to serve on a path of great prosperity.

"As we seamlessly transition power, I congratulate Speaker Boehner and House Republicans, and look forward to working with them to address the important issues facing our nation.

"I will work with them where we have common ground; however, I will decline to support efforts that compromise my longstanding principles and those of the people of Connecticut's 1st District. We must continue on the path and build on the accomplishments of the previous Congress of creating jobs, rejuvenating our economy, and supporting and protecting our middle class.

"I am deeply grateful to be provided the opportunity to renew my commitment to the citizens of Connecticut, and pledge that I and my staff will diligently work on their behalf every day, as we have for the past 12 years. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your member of Congress."
