First Day of a New Era

Today is a historic day. Today, we officially have a new President!

It was an incredible experience to sit on the west lawn of our nation’s capital with hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans to watch President Trump’s inauguration. Listening to the next President of the United States of America and his vision leaves me extremely optimistic for the future of this country.

But with the inauguration of our 45th President comes great responsibility. President Trump promised to Make America Great Again, and I am confident he will deliver.

On Election Day, the American people made it clear they would not tolerate another four years like the last eight. That is our mandate. We must and will work tirelessly to change the trajectory of this great nation and leave a better future for our children and grandchildren.

I look forward to working with my colleagues, President Trump, and all of you to truly Make America Great Again!

Celebrating Life, Liberty and Happiness – for All

Today is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a day meant to honor a man who played an incredible role in making this country a better place.

54 years ago, Dr. King gave his famous “I have a Dream” speech with the hope that our nation’s “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” applied to all Americans.

Thankfully, over the last 50 years, great strides have been made, but more can still be done. Importantly, as we close out a divisive campaign year and gain a new President, we can look back to Dr. King for guidance. He was a champion for what he believed, and he was a peaceful activist even when some demanded violence.

So, as we head into a historic week please remember the teachings of Dr. King and one of my favorite quotations of his: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

This week, I hope you join me in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and celebrating our country.
