Honoring Tim Friedman

Location: Washington, DC



Mr. PASCRELL. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to bring attention to the life and work of an outstanding individual whom I feel fortunate to have known for the last 9 years, Mr. Tim Friedman. He is being recognized on Tuesday, July 25, 2006, on the occasion of his retirement after 30 years of service to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Tim is originally from Lackawanna, NY, and began his career in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976. He started as a Doorkeeper and in 1985 he was appointed Assistant Manager of the House Democratic Cloakroom by then Speaker of the House, Tip O'Neill.

My fellow Democratic colleagues and I agree that he has served us extraordinarily well for the past 21 years in the Democratic Cloakroom. Tim always made sure that I knew what legislative business was on the schedule for the day, and was a great person to converse with in between votes. But more importantly, Tim and I share a special bond as fans of the greatest baseball team in history, the New York Yankees. I will truly miss our bantering back and forth with Red Sox fans Mr. CAPUANO and Tim's co-worker Barry Fisher. I know Tim will be missed by all of my Democratic colleagues, even Mr. CAPUANO, whom he regularly bested in important baseball debates.

Mr. Speaker, it is an honor and privilege to extend my best wishes to a dedicated public servant. May he enjoy a very well-deserved retirement. Tim, you will be missed.
