WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) released the following statement today after being sworn in to the 116th Congress:
“Georgia’s 10th District and America as a whole have made great strides over the past two years, and despite the new dynamics, I will continue to work to help improve the lives of citizens across our District and our Nation. I want to express my deep appreciation to the people of the 10th District for providing me with the privilege of representing them in Congress for another term.
“The coming months in a new Congress will bring debates and discussions about how to best move forward as a country. I will work in good faith with my colleagues across the aisle to find common ground where possible, but I will hold steady on our shared conservative principles.
“In our district, hard work, determination, and innovation drive the people that live here. I have seen the commitment to helping advance our community’s vision, and that shared resilience and optimism inspire me every day. That’s why I have always made it a priority to bring those concerns with me to Washington in order to amplify the voices of the people I represent.
“Locally, we’ve seen reassuring signs of businesses expanding and creating jobs, entrepreneurs and small businesses growing as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, public-private partnerships bringing significant investment in economic development, and state-of-the art technology and education centers showcasing the 10th District’s bright minds and vast resources.
“Over the next two years, I will continue to advocate for limited government, a strengthened national security, and a bolstered economy for a stronger and more prosperous future for each and every one of us.”
