Cathy McMorris Rodgers
It is an honor to represent Washington's Fifth Congressional District. My most important work is to ensure there are jobs and opportunity for the people of Eastern Washington and that your voice is heard in the nation's capital.
I am working to expand the mission of Fairchild Air Force Base, help military families, and bring a medical school to Eastern Washington. My bills to promote hydropower, protect children's health and help those with disabilities became law last year, and I am working now on more legislation to promote healthy forests and promote 21st Century cures.
There are serious challenges facing our country. We are locked in a war with Islamic terrorism, our federal debt is over $16 trillion, and there are too many obstacles making it difficult to create jobs. Though the task is large, I am working hard to get results on these issues as your Congresswoman.
I was single when I was first elected to Congress and now, with a wonderful husband and three children, I feel that being a wife and mom has made me all the more determined to work for families here — regardless of where they live or the challenges they face.
