Rep. Kelly Sworn-in for Fifth House Term

Jan 3, 2019

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA) issued the following statement today after being sworn-in as Representative of the new 16th Congressional District of Pennsylvania. This will be the congressman’s fifth term in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he will continue to serve on the House Committee on Ways and Means.

“I am tremendously honored to begin my fifth term in the People’s House. As with my past four terms in office, all of my work in Congress going forward will be guided by what is truly best for every hardworking family in Western Pennsylvania. They can rest fully assured that their deeply held values, concerns, and priorities will be represented each day I come to work.

“The 115th Congress saw historic legislative achievements and results for all Americans, from pro-growth tax cuts and commonsense deregulation to rebuilding our military and combating the opioid crisis, along with much more. As we embark on the 116th Congress, divided government will look different and present new challenges, but my job will remain exactly the same: passionately bringing Western Pennsylvania’s voice to Washington, and never the other way around. It is my sincere hope that the House will work with the Senate and President Trump to build on the success of the recent past. Together, we owe it to the American people to stay focused on smart policies that make our country prosperous, job-filled, safe, and free.”
