"Voters in the 3rd District sent a clear message: they want a Congressman focused on ending the gridlock in Washington, a Congressman with a proven bipartisan track record of working with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to move America forward, a Congressman focused on the needs of the 3rd District," Garamendi said.
My family and I are voting Yes on Prop 41, and we encourage you to do the same. For years now, I've attended the Dixon and Yuba City Stand Downs for homeless and lower income veterans. I've heard the horror stories, but I've also seen the success stories. I want to see more success stories. I want to see veterans rise from homelessness. I want to see the scourge of veteran homelessness purged from our great state. Please, vote Yes on Prop 41.
"The authorization to use military force in Afghanistan was passed by Congress 13 years ago. Much has changed during America's longest war," Garamendi said. "Congress needs to have a serious debate on the role of our military and foreign aid in Afghanistan. We owe at least this much to our brave men and women in uniform who have sacrificed so much."
“I am honored to have the continued support of our elected representatives and community leaders in the 3rd Congressional District,” said Congressman Garamendi. “Working together, we’ve been able to accomplish much for this district and the state, and it’s my privilege to have them as local partners. This district is blessed to have so many people working to make life better in our region.”
"I know California is in a drought right now, but it’s a terrible mistake to be complacent about our flood risk. Flood conditions will return, and when they do, we better be ready," Garamendi added."WRRDA authorizes funding for needed levee projects in my district, and working with local, state, and federal officials throughout this region, I’ll continue doing all I can to improve our flood infrastructure."
“Every day, firefighters and highway patrolmen put their lives on the line to keep our communities safe. It is the responsibility of all public servants to ensure that these brave men and women receive the support they deserve,” said Congressmen Garamendi. “I am honored to have the endorsement of our public safety leaders.”
"These sharp-looking planes represent hundreds of middle-class jobs coming to Solano County. I am excited to welcome ICON Aircraft to our community and to have them join my Manufacturing Advisory Committee,' said Congressman Garamendi. "This new facility will help the region’s economy take off. ICON will create customers for other businesses through their supply chain, employee spending in the area, added tourism, and more. I was happy to add my voice to chorus of support from the Solano business community, local officials, and the Solano Community College. When we work together, we can 'Make It In America' and 'Make It In California.'"
"During National Nurses Week and National Teacher Appreciation Week, I want to thank the nurses and teachers that have touched my life and my family," Garamendi added. "I’m proud to be the father of three public school teachers, a nurse, and a family practice doctor, and I’m proud to stand with teachers and nurses as we work together to make our country healthier and prepared for tomorrow’s challenges."
"I am proud to support language in the NDAA that would prevent a dangerous capability gap in our Air Mobility and ISR missions," said Garamendi. "We can’t put the cart before the horse by retiring the KC-10 before the KC-46 is ready to meet our Air Mobility needs. Similarly, the top commander for American troops in South Korea, Army General Curtis Scaparrotti, recently testified before Congress and said that the U-2 is essential for knowing what the North Korean regime is doing – just one example of how the information the U-2 provides strengthens our national defense and saves lives."
"Our veterans have sacrificed enormously for our nation. We have the highest moral obligation to ensure they receive the benefits they’ve earned and every possible opportunity to succeed. This bill has powerful tools to slash the shameful veterans' claims backlog. It provides the VA with needed resources and the necessary pressure to modernize their system and better serve our vets," said Congressman John Garamendi, who represents tens of thousands of veterans.
