Rep. Meeks Issues Statement on Chairman Joe Crowley
Washington, DC - Today, U.S. Representative Gregory W. Meeks (NY-05) issued the following statement regarding the election results of New York’s 14th District:
“As a representative of a neighboring district, I’ve had the opportunity to know Joe Crowley as a champion for American families in both DC and at home in Queens, New York. Throughout his tenure as Congressman, as Chair of the Queens County Democratic Party, as Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, I have never known Joe to shy away from a fight. Chairman Crowley has faithfully served his country and constituents with conviction, always working to address the issues facing everyday Americans, like making housing more affordable and fixing our health care system, or making it easier to raise a family. He has stood alongside minorities in the fight against discrimination, with immigrants against this administration, and with workers fighting for fair-wages.
“I thank him for his tireless efforts and congratulate Ms. Ocasio-Cortez on her victory last night. I look forward to working together to better our borough and our nation.”
