TheLiberalOC received the following announcement from Congressman Lou Correa’s office this afternoon:
Today Congressman Lou Correa announced he will be attending the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump.
Congressman Correa said,
“I have received much communication regarding tomorrow’s Presidential inauguration, expressing opinions across the political spectrum. Clearly, while the election is over, the negativity continues. And, our Nation continues to be deeply divided.
We have a new President. Yet, the presidency is about our nation and our constitution, and not about an individual. This inauguration is another event in a line of peaceful transitions of power that are the hallmark of our country.
I was elected to go to D.C. to work for my constituents, to help our middle class, to help all our working families, and to create good paying jobs. I came to DC to make sure that all Americans, including new Americans, have the opportunity to work hard and achieve the American Dream. I am here to work with all who will work with me, to work across the aisle, irrespective of party affiliation.
I’m going to D.C. to be at the table when decisions are made that affect my constituents. Either we are at the table or we are on the menu.”
