Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after being sworn in at the beginning of the 113th Congress.

“I am honored to have been given the opportunity to continue to serve the great people of Iowa’s Second District.

“As we begin the 113th Congress, we have many issues that must be addressed, and none is more important than boosting the economy and setting our country on a sustainable path.  To do this, we have to work to create jobs and bolster middle class and working families.  We have to resolve our long-term deficit and debt problem, but it cannot be done on the backs of seniors, the middle-class, and hard working families.  I truly believe that our best days are in front of us and with hard work and commonsense, we will be able to move our great country forward.

“I look forward to continuing to serve the people of the Second District and be their voice.”

Loebsack will have two District offices, in Iowa City and Davenport, and will remain in the same office in Washington.  He also has staff based in Burlington and Albia.
