EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION DAY
(Mr. PRICE of North Carolina asked and was given permission to
address the House for 1 minute.)
Mr. PRICE of North Carolina. Mr. Speaker, tomorrow, March 3, is
Employee Appreciation Day; and since we
won't be in session, I rise today to register my appreciation for the
staff members who allow me to serve the people of the Fourth District
of North Carolina.
The current political and media environment is not always an easy one
for congressional staff to operate in, yet, every year, the staffers
working in my North Carolina district offices help thousands of
constituents navigate Federal agencies. They reach out to local
businesses, governments, and other organizations, and help constituents
access needed support.
In Washington, D.C., our office staff researches thousands of pieces
of legislation. They help me communicate with hundreds of thousands of
constituent communications, and help welcome constituents to
Washington. And they join me in meetings with constituent groups and
local and State representatives and universities and businesses--every
So the list of tasks is long, but all of them help ensure that the
people of the Fourth District of North Carolina have a voice in the
people's House. Simply put, these staff members that serve all of us
represent the very best of public service. I and the people of North
Carolina are grateful for their service.
Mr. Speaker, in recognition of their dedication and diligence, I
would like to include in the Congressional Record the names of each of
my staff currently employed in my office:
Nadia Alston, Katelynn Anderson, Sonia Barnes, Nora Blalock, Bayly
Hassell, Asher Hildebrand, James Hunter, Lawrence Kluttz, Tracy Lovett,
Sean Maxwell, Neel Mandavilli, Dave Russell, Samantha Schifrin, Anna
Tilghman, Justin Wein, Leigh Whittaker, and Robyn Winneberger.
I am grateful, Mr. Speaker, for the effort that these staff members
continue to put forth and for the opportunity that Employee
Appreciation Day gives me and others to honor their service.
