Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Democracy Has Prevailed: Attending the 59th Inaugural

Jan 21, 2021

Yesterday, we began writing a new, exciting chapter in our nation’s history—and although the 2021 Inauguration looked different because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, it wasn’t any less momentous.

I strongly believe President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are the perfect team to lead us during these extremely trying times. Moreover, they recognize that we must stand united as Americans—not political foes—to defeat the virus, expand economic opportunity, and ensure justice for all. 

To that effect, I too promise to lead by example, working closely with the White House and congressional leadership to do my best to serve YOU: the constituents of Ohio’s Third Congressional District. That begins by providing greater support to hardworking Americans, their families and small businesses, helping homeowners and renters, making healthcare affordable, addressing the student debt crisis, strengthening our communities, cleaning the environment, and celebrating the transformational effect of diversity and inclusion.

The weeks and months ahead are critical, and I believe Congress has an obligation to act. Too many lives and livelihoods are at risk. Now is the time to move from agony to action. Now is the time to build back better for our people, our economy, and our country.
