WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Carmel Valley) attended the inauguration of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Vice President Kamala D. Harris in Washington, D.C.

“In taking their oaths of office today, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris embarked on their duty to unify our democracy,” said Congressman Panetta.  “On the very same steps where we witnessed an insurrection two weeks ago, today, President Biden made clear his intent to heal our wounds by working together.  We now can rely on our President to lead with faith and empathy to sustain the soul of the nation.  The next four years offer so much opportunity for our country and the Central Coast and I look forward to working with President Biden and Vice President Harris to deliver vaccines as well as pandemic relief, affirmatively act on the climate crisis, invest in our nation’s infrastructure, fix our broken immigration system, advance our values, and ensure greater opportunity for everybody.  It really is our time to write our nation’s next chapter so that together everyone has a role to play in the future of our democracy.”
