NORMA TORRES SWORN-IN AS A NEW MEMBER OF THE 114TH CONGRESS
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-CA) was officially sworn-in as U.S. Representative for California’s 35th district.
“It is an honor and a privilege to serve in the United States Congress,” Torres stated. “I am humbled by the opportunity to represent the residents of California’s 35th district and am ready to get to work on their behalf.
The problems facing the Inland Empire are no different than those most Americans face: keeping a roof over their heads, putting their kids through college, affording quality healthcare, and finding a good-paying job,” Torres continued. “I am committed to doing my part to break the gridlock by working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to move our nation forward and do what is right for the voters who sent us here.”
Rep. Torres was elected to Congress on November 4, 2014 and succeeds former Rep. Gloria Negrete McLeod.
