Kuster Sworn in for Historic Third Term as U.S. Representative for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District
(Washington, DC) – Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) was sworn in as the U.S. Representative for New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District. Kuster will be serving her third term, a first for a Democrat in the seat. Congresswoman Kuster serves on the House Veterans Affairs Committee and is the lead Democrat on the Subcommittee on Oversights and Investigations. She also serves on the House Agriculture Committee and is the co-founder and co-chair of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic.
“It’s truly an honor to represent New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District in Congress, and I’m humbled by the trust placed in me by the voters,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “In the new Congress, I’m once again prepared to focus on the needs of hardworking families in New Hampshire, and I stand ready to do the work expected by the people of the Granite State. We need to expand access to health care for our veterans, support families by enacting paid family leave and lowering student debt, protect small family farms, fight substance use disorder, and grow our economy. I’ll oppose efforts to roll back the progress we’ve made in recent years and work across the aisle to advance our shared interests. I’m excited to get to work with my colleagues, Senator Shaheen, Senator Hassan, and Congresswoman Shea-Porter as part of the first ever all-female all Democratic Congressional delegation. ”
