Democratic majority gives Marianas clout

Nov 10, 2018

The Democratic party will have the majority of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, when it convenes in January, giving the Marianas more clout. By working in a bipartisan way, I have been able to do well for the Marianas over the last eight years even with a Republican majority U.S. House of Representatives:

But when Democrats had the majority in my first two years in Congress:

Those were good years for the Marianas. And I am looking forward to good years ahead with Democrats back in the majority.

With my ten years’ seniority, we are also in line for a chairmanship in the Education Committee or the Natural Resources Committee, which has jurisdiction over insular affairs.

After Tuesday’s election, I sent congratulations to all the new Democratic members, especially Michael San Nicolas, the new Democratic Delegate from Guam.
