Hi everyone, Tom Emmer here with a special Memorial Day message.
For many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer season.
For others, this holiday is seen as a day off from work or school, and as a chance to spend time outdoors grilling with family and friends.
But in actuality, this day is a solemn one.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) announced today that he will host his first town hall of the year in Big Lake on June 17th.
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, Congressman Emmer’s second piece of legislation passed off the House Floor. unanimously. This bill would designate the Post Office at St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota as the “Eugene J. McCarthy Post Office.”
Earlier this month, Eida and her mother Justine visited my staff in our district office. After running into issues with an adoption freeze and no exit visas, my office was able to help Eida and her family finalize her adoption. Eida was adopted from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and was brought home just the week before stopping by our office.
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, Congressman Emmer introduced the CFPB Dual Mandate and Economic Analysis Act.
While meeting with Minnesotans from the Sixth District, I often hear frustration about the pace of getting real reforms passed in Washington. And rightly so.
As a member of Congress, it is part of my job to listen to my constituents, to those who hired me. A great desire for more transparency and accountability in our state and federal government is something that I have heard ever since I first ran for office. The other part of my job is to actually do something about the concerns of my constituents.
