Congressman Butterfield Holiday Message and 114th Congress in Review
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) released the following statement in recognition of the 2016 holiday season:
As 2016 draws to a close, let us use this time to reflect on our accomplishments and set new goals for the year ahead.
This has been a particularly challenging year for many of our friends and neighbors. The historic flooding and devastation that resulted from Hurricane Matthew means we must all stay the course toward recovery and recommit to helping one another.
This year has seen much change in our state and nation. I want you to know that I remain committed to working with all my colleagues to pursue commonsense solutions to our the most pressing issues impacting our communities; from fighting for a living wage to protecting access to affordable healthcare for those who need it the most. There is much work to be done to make sure every person has a fair shot at achieving the American dream and I hope you will continue to join me in the fight.
I am particularly grateful for our brave men and women in uniform who serve both here and around the world protecting our freedom and our American values we hold dear.
So, as you celebrate this holiday season with family and friends, may your days be filled with love and happiness.
Be safe, stay warm, and have a blessed New Year!
