Today, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson was sworn-in to her eleventh term as the Representative of Texas's Thirtieth Congressional District.
"I am honored and humbled by the trust placed in me by the people of the 30th Congressional District," Congresswoman Johnson said. "I will work diligently for my constituents, and ensure that we are moving forward as a district and as a Nation. We must ultimately find a way to prevent further economic crisis, and to continue to strengthen our middle class. I hope all of my colleagues and the Leadership will continue to work on these issues, and that the legislative policies forthcoming in the 113th Congress ultimately reflect solid bipartisan collaboration."
The 30th District of Texas includes downtown Dallas, Fair Park, Kessler Park, Old East Dallas, Pleasant Grove, South Dallas & South Oak Cliff, Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, Hutchins, Lancaster & Wilmer and parts of Ferris, Glenn Heights, South Grand Prairie, Oak Lawn, Ovilla, Uptown/Victory Park and West Dallas.
Congresswoman Johnson has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1993. She is the first African American and the first female Ranking Member on the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee. Congresswoman Johnson also serves as the highest ranking Texan on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
