Rick Larsen for Congress

 

Back to getting things done

First of all, I want to take a moment to thank the volunteers and staff who worked tirelessly, not only for my campaign but for local Democratic candidates across District 2.

Your dedication, long hours, countless calls and canvassing efforts have made the Blue Wave a reality.

The decisive victories across the country are a clear rebuke of Trump's personality-driven politics. More importantly, they are a reflection of what we can do together, to overcome hate and divisiveness, and build a better future for all Americans.

We claim a victory today, but tomorrow we're back to getting things done.

In the 2nd District, that means bringing middle class families better jobs and higher wages and give people the tools they will need to succeed – by investing in our transportation infrastructure, expanding access to STEM education and skills training, and ensuring the next generation of workers has the tools they need to compete in a global marketplace.

I am committed to addressing challenges Washingtonians face every day.

That means protecting access to affordable health care, fighting the opioid epidemic, and keeping this administration accountable for undermining our investments in Social Security and Medicare.

Our country still has differences to be sure, but that's where the work of governing begins.

This seat belongs to the people of District 2, and I am humbled and honored that you have given me the privilege of representing this district for another two years.
