Congresswoman Terri Sewell on Thursday released the following statement regarding the decision by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to step down from Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives.
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a true public servant whose tenure as Speaker of the House will be remembered as one of the most effective examples of leadership in modern history. For two decades, she has led the Democratic Caucus with dignity and grace, breaking down barriers for women and girls and putting the needs of the American people above all,” Sewell said.
“I have been honored to partner with Speaker Pelosi to advance the needs of Alabama’s 7th Congressional District including our work to pass HR4, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. While she will no longer lead our caucus, I have no doubt that Speaker Pelosi will remain a powerful force for good in our party and our nation. I look forward to continuing to serve alongside her.”
