WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today released the following statement ahead of the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden.
“Today is a moment of optimism and a moment of renewal. Since the pandemic began, our communities in Central Virginia have experienced tremendous hardships and uncertainty. We’ve watched frontline healthcare professionals work around the clock to save lives, and we’ve watched neighbors fall ill and businesses fall on hard times. These challenges continue, but I have confidence that this administration will tackle these issues by harnessing the power of American ingenuity, ambition, and hard work.
“Throughout my career, I’ve been proud to take an oath four times to protect and defend the Constitution and the American people. As President Biden is sworn in today as our Commander in Chief, I look forward to working directly with his administration as we unite our country behind a common purpose. In Congress, I’ll be focused on working with the Biden-Harris Administration to rebuild our economy in a way that allows working families to succeed, small businesses to grow, and students to access new opportunities. I’m also eager to work with this administration on delivering a strong infrastructure package that will create new jobs, as well as a national COVID-19 vaccination strategy that will bring us out of the pandemic.
“I’m honored to serve Central Virginia each day, and I am hopeful that the next few months will bring hope, greater certainty, and a sense of progress to our communities.”
