BOWIE, MD – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer released the following statement tonight after being reelected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Maryland’s Fifth Congressional District:
“I am honored to have received the support of my neighbors to continue serving them in the U.S. House of Representatives. I am proud of what I’ve accomplished on behalf of my constituents throughout my career, from fighting for federal employees, veterans, and seniors, to advocating for military installations and federal facilities, to working for job creation and middle-class opportunities. But there is still a great deal of work to be done.
“I will continue to advocate for my Make It In America plan to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship so that we can create good jobs here at home. I will keep working to ensure our federal employees receive fair pay and benefits. I will continue my work to protect the Chesapeake Bay, its tributaries, and our environment. I will continue to stand up for our military installations across the district, which perform critical national security work and make all of us proud. I will keep fighting to make a quality education at all levels affordable and accessible to everyone. And I will keep pushing for equal pay for equal work and a higher minimum wage.
“I look forward to working with our newest Senator, Chris Van Hollen, our senior Senator, Ben Cardin, and the rest of the Maryland delegation to make our country even greater.”
