RELEASE: Gil Cisneros Statement on House Leadership

Fullerton, Calif. – Today, Gil Cisneros, Congressman-elect for California’s 39th District, released the following statement on his support for new House Democratic leadership: 

“Throughout my campaign, I have emphasized the importance of bringing new leadership to Congress and how the need for change was a motivating factor in my decision to run. I have also maintained that bringing change not only applies to Washington Republicans, but also taking a look within the Democratic Party. I have tremendous respect for Nancy Pelosi, and I believe she has been a fearless advocate for her district, Californians, and our country. She is responsible for some of our Party’s greatest achievements, and I am thankful for her leadership. The people of the 39th District made it clear, however, that they want to see real change in Washington, and I intend to follow through on my commitment to support new leadership. Our Democratic caucus is comprised of many dedicated individuals who are more than capable of leading our Party and the House of Representatives into the future.”
