Statement from Rep. John Katko on Inauguration Day


Washington – U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today released the following statement on the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:

“Over the past year, this nation has endured a pandemic, a bitter election fight, and unprecedented tests to our democracy.  Like so many Americans, I’m eager to move forward, together.

“Since 2015, I have had the privilege of serving Central New York in Congress under both Republican and Democratic Administrations. Under Presidents from both parties, I have worked across party lines to find common ground on key issues, but have not hesitated to actively oppose proposals which run counter to the needs and values of Central New York. I pledge to continue that work in the face of the many challenges ahead of this Congress.

 “As I have said with every previous Administration, regardless of party, I hope this Administration is successful in strengthening and protecting our country.  As President Biden and Vice President Harris are sworn into office today, I’m urging greater cooperation from both parties so we can unite to build a stronger, healthier, and more prosperous nation.”
