"A popular government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy; or, perhaps both.

The Democrats have been in charge of the House of Representatives for over 100 days now, and all they have been able to do is show the American people how extreme and incompetent they really are on the issues facing our nation.

On Thursday, January 3, I was sworn in to begin my third term in Congress. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent Alabama’s Sixth Congressional District and look forward to keeping in touch with you during the 116th Congress.
As we prepare to give thanks for the many blessings we have as a nation on Thanksgiving, I wanted to provide you a brief update on my activities in Washington and in the District, as well as look ahead to the next Congress. I value staying connected with you and hearing your feedback on the issues important to you. As usual, if my office can assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
I hope October is off to a good start for you and that you are enjoying a bit of cooler weather and fall football. In the past few weeks there has been much to vote on and discuss. I’m glad for this chance to update you on the work my colleagues and I are doing in Washington.
The district work period was full of meetings with constituents, business owners, and local officials. I enjoyed seeing so many of you at meetings and town halls. It’s important to me to stay connected with you and hear your feedback on the issues important to you. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me and for giving me the chance to answer your questions.
