U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, whose Eighth District constituency includes the Graham and Eatonville areas, released the following statement after attending President Barack Obama’s second inauguration:
“Today’s inauguration of President Barack Obama is a symbol of our freedom and peaceful democracy, reaffirming the strength of our Constitution.
“Our country is facing great challenges and we must work together to provide opportunities and prosperity for all Americans. We must find common ground to move our country forward, stop the political posturing and do what is right for the American people.
“I am committed to working across the aisle with members of Congress and President Obama so we can make sure that our country’s potential is allowed to flourish and put Americans back to work.”
