I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent Pennsylvania's 13th Congressional District in the House of Representatives for six wonderful years. I have truly enjoyed working for you in Washington DC, and I hope that I have been responsive to your concerns. Serving as your Congressman is the highest honor of my career.
In the coming weeks, I will be transferring the functions of my offices in Washington, Northeast Philadelphia and Ambler to your new representative, Allyson Schwartz. It is my goal to provide a seamless transition for the people of Northeast Philadelphia and Montgomery County. I encourage you to contact Representative Schwartz when her term begins in January. She will be an outstanding member of Congress and will represent us very well.
Again, thank you for allowing me to be your Congressman. I intend to remain active in our community, and I hope our paths cross again in the future.
