Today, U.S. Representative Stephen Fincher (R-Frog Jump) today was officially sworn in to represent the 8th Congressional District of Tennessee for the 113th Session of the United States Congress. The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, conducted an individual ceremonial swearing-in for Congressman Fincher with his wife, Lynn and daughter Sarah, in the Capitol following the oath of office for all Members on the floor of the House of Representatives.
"It is a tremendous honor to serve the people of the 8th district of Tennessee. The federal government must work for the people not the other way around. In the next two years, I will fight for commonsense solutions. So many times Washington makes issues out to be rocket science and it's not. Its commonsense we need to address our country's addiction to spending. It's commonsense we must make our country more competitive in the global market to create jobs. We can change and get our country moving in the right direction. Washington just needs a healthy dose of commonsense."
Congressman Fincher is a member of the House Committee on Financial Services.
