Jared Huffman Sworn In As New North Bay Congressman

Huffman will represent newly drawn 2nd District, which includes much of Sonoma County except for central county areas in Rohnert Park and Santa Rosa.


Newly elected Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) was sworn in as a member of the 113th Congress on Thursday, Jan. 3 in Washington, D.C.

“I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues to solve problems and to get things done,” said Huffman. “I’m mindful of the huge responsibility I’m undertaking, and I’m ready and excited to get to work on behalf of the great people of California’s second district.”

Congressman Huffman was joined at his swearing in event by his mother (pictured on the right), two brothers, wife, and two children. In honor of the occasion, Jared hosted a reception and watch party with family and constituents from California’s 2nd district in his Washington, D.C. office.

Huffman represents the 2nd district of California, which covers the North Bay and over 500 miles of coastline stretching from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.

That includes much of Sonoma County, with the exception of central county areas in Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, which are now in the newly drawn 5th congressional district, represented by Helena.

Huffman was sworn in with a class of 67 new representatives: 29 Republicans and 38 Democrats.

What is Huffman's agenda for his term of office? What does he plan to do to reduce the ever-growing amount of Government interference in our lives? What does he plan to do to restore all the civil liberties confiscated over the last 20 years? Specifically, what is he planning to do to repeal the TSA, restore autonomy to local school systems, shut down Gitmo, withdraw expeditionary armed forces, bring government spending back in line with revenues, and give people more control over personal issues like healthcare and retirement?

He brings a solid track record and fresh ideas to chnage things for the better. I welcome him to the new position and have high but fiar hopes for his changes. Check out his past votes and his websites for what his beliefs are to get a better understanding of what he is all about. He stands for helping human kind in the most positive way.

Sounds like hope and change, no solid position.
