Capps Sworn In As Member of the 113th Congress
As of today, Capps officially represents the 24th Congressional district of California, which includes the entirety of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties, and a portion of Ventura County. A photo of Capps’ ceremonial swearing in with Speaker John A. Boehner is available here. Also pictured are Congresswoman Capps’ daughter Laura, son in law Bill, and grandson Oscar.
“It’s an honor to represent the Central Coast for another term in the United States House of Representatives and I look forward to ensuring our voice is heard in the critical debates in Washington. I share the frustration of my constituents with the excessive partisanship and unnecessary brinksmanship the American people have been subjected to over the last two years. Our country faces significant challenges that we can only address by putting aside our differences and working together. I will work hard to make the new Congress more effective and hope my Republican and Democratic colleagues join me in this effort,” said Congresswoman Capps.
