As we gather with our families and friends during this holiday season, I hope you will join me in pausing to take account of our many blessings – the blessings of American freedom, American peace, and American prosperity.
As 2014 comes to a close, so too does the 113th Congress. So as we begin a new year and commence a new 114th Congress, let us recommit ourselves to the promises we have made to work every day to make our nation better than we found it. Let us recommit ourselves to the founding constitutional principles that have made this country great – principles of freedom, limited government, and unlimited opportunity. Let us recommit ourselves to working every day to promote policies that will make it easier for our farmers, our Main Street businesses, and our working families to succeed. I believe that if we keep our promises we will indeed build a stronger America for our children and grandchildren.
It is a great honor to serve the people of Virginia's 5th District, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent you in the United States Congress. I look forward to serving you for the next two years as we work toward our shared goal of a brighter and stronger future for our great nation.
I hope you and your family will enjoy this season of peace and good will, and I wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year.
