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.
My staff and I have appreciated seeing so many of you in Washington this summer. I hope your visits to our nation’s Capitol building were enjoyable and informative. It has been a busy summer for the staff and me, and I’m now looking forward to some time to reconnect with many of you in the Sixth District during the August district work period.
For many families with children out of school, summer is the time for family vacations, and a lot of 6th District families have been making Washington their vacation destination. The staff and I have enjoyed seeing so many folks from the district stopping by my Congressional office to visit and start their Capitol building tours.
I hope you're enjoying the early stages of summer. Summer time means many visitors to our nation's capital from Alabama and the 6th District. If you are planning a trip to Washington, you should call our office to set up a Capitol tour led by one of our staff. I appreciate this opportunity to update you on the work we're doing in Washington.
We have reached the mid-point of 2017. In the first six months we saw the House pass over 170 bills including two of the most important bills in a decade. The American Health Care Act is the House bill that takes the first step toward repealing Obamacare and beginning the process of repairing our broken healthcare system.
The August work period is upon us and I am happy to be back home meeting with constituents all across the Sixth District. I am hosting two town halls next week in Calera and Hueytown, and I would like to invite you to join in on the conversation at one of them.
Some may call our district work periods “recess” or a “vacation”, but they are anything but that. Instead they are a great opportunity for me to connect with the great people of Alabama’s Sixth District and see all of the good happening in our own backyards!
The 115th Congress is off to a fast start, and I’m hopeful we can deliver on our promises to limit the size and scope of government.
