Walz Statement on State of the Union Address
Washington, DC [1/12/16] – Tonight, Representative Tim Walz (D-MN) released the following statement in response to the President’s State of the Union Address:
“President Obama's State of Union address tonight urged us to live up to our highest ideals, grow our economy by building up the middle class and expanding opportunity, protect our national security and be a global leader. He is right. As we seek to tackle our greatest challenges, we must tap into the innovation and ingenuity that runs so deep in our American spirit. Reforming our political system to engage more Americans is critical to our future.
I was proud to have Jonathan Zierdt with me tonight. He has been a visionary in southern Minnesota from building public-private partnerships that attract businesses and investment to tackling affordable housing to understanding the need for a safe and efficient transportation system. Folks like Jonathan will be absolutely vital to our success in the future and building an economy that works for all Americans.”
