Beatty Statement on the 59th Presidential Inauguration
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement on the inauguration of President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris:
“Today, we begin writing a new, exciting chapter in our nation's history. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are the perfect team to lead our country during these exceptionally trying times. They recognize that we must stand united as Americans—not political foes—to defeat COVID-19, expand economic opportunity, and ensure equal justice for all.
To that effect, I too promise to lead by example, working closely with the Biden-Harris Administration and congressional leadership to heal the wounds of the past. 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.
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.”
