CONGRESSMAN SPANO SWORN IN TO SERVE FLORIDA’S 15TH DISTRICT
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Ross Spano today issued the following statement after being sworn in to serve Florida’s 15th Congressional District as a member of the 116th Congress:
"I am extremely humbled by this opportunity entrusted to me by my constituents. This is a responsibility I do not take lightly, and I will work tirelessly to fight for our shared Conservative values and the issues that are so important to this district.
"This Congress is being seated at a time of tremendous division, but we must not lose sight of our primary responsibility - to serve those we represent and to fight for their best interests. I pledge to listen, to learn, and to be a fierce advocate for District 15.
"One of our top priorities must be ending this government shutdown; we have a responsibility to fund the government. I would support legislation forcing members of Congress to forfeit pay during any government shutdown, and I pledge not to take a paycheck until this impasse is resolved."
