The Reporter: "Solano County's Congressman John Garamendi: Support 'Make it in America'"

During a break of the House of Representatives, Congressman John Garamendi, D-Solano, left Washington, D.C., to stop by and visit his district.

Garamendi currently represents District 10, but that will change since new district maps are out.

Running for re-election next year, if Garamendi holds onto his post he will represent the new District 3 which includes all of Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun City, Dixon and Rio Vista.

"I'm all for the unification of Solano County," he said of the new district boundaries.

At the urging of non-profit and faith-based groups, Garamendi stopped by St. Stephen's CME Church in Fairfield where he met Linda Mahoney, director of the Interfaith Council, Rev. David Isom, Solano County Supervisor Mike Reagan and Solano County Veterans' Service Officer Ted Puntilo.

He was there to join a discussion on best practices to treat and counsel veterans and their families suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

"As our men and women return from Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a growing problem," Garamendi said in a press release. "You see it in your communities and among your parishioners. We cannot turn our backs on our wounded warriors. We're here today to make sure that men and women who risked everything have everything they need to rebuild their lives. With your help, veterans in our community will not be left behind."
