We're ready to work

On Jan. 6, three of us took our public oath to serve the people of Idaho in the U.S. Congress—two for the first time and one for the sixth time—and the fourth moved into a new role as senior senator. Together, we look forward to working to uphold the values of all Idahoans and promoting what is good for our families, communities and state.

2009 begins in a challenging time for our state and nation. Whether it is personal or business financial uncertainty, a loved one serving our nation overseas, health care or housing concerns, or just getting through what is proving to be a second hard winter, Idahoans have concerns about what the future will hold. While it is indeed true that there are challenges ahead, there are also tremendous opportunities to make positive gains.

You can count on your Idaho congressional delegation to work hard, together and with Gov. Otter, for the good of Idaho and Idahoans. We are united in this commitment and plan to take every opportunity we can to accomplish goals that reflect Idaho's heritage of individualism, hard work and commitment to family and our unparalleled natural resources. We appreciate the opportunity to serve in public office, and pledge to work collaboratively and to uphold the dignity and respect of our offices.
