Read Langworthy, committee Chair reaction

By Andrew Harris

Freshman US Congressman from newly redrawn 26th District, Nick Langworthy has shown his political skills early in his first term. Also the NYS Republican Chairman, Langworthy aligned himself with now Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy. That relationship began well before McCarthy’s struggle to become Speaker and Langworthy voted for him in all sixteen house elections. That loyalty and alliance has already paid off for Langworthy, and the people of the 26th.

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, January 19th, Congressman Nick Langworthy released the following statement after his appointment to the House Oversight Committee.

“I am honored to have been selected as a member of the House Oversight Committee under the leadership of Chairman James Comer. From holding the Biden Administration accountable to fighting for truth and transparency for hardworking American taxpayers, the work of this committee is more important than ever. The message should be loud and clear that unchecked power—whether it be from inside the government or out– has come to an end, starting with the work of this committee. I’m excited to get started,” said Congressman Langworthy

“With Rep. Langworthy and our Republican members, this Congress we’ve got an all-star lineup ready to hit the ground running and go to bat for the American people. Unchecked, one-party Democrat rule in Washington resulted in crises on every front, but with our Republican majority, oversight and accountability are here. Together, we will return the House Oversight and Accountability Committee to its mission to root out waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in the federal government and hold the Biden Administration accountable. We will work to ensure American taxpayers’ investment in the federal government is spent effectively, efficiently, and transparently, and will propose solutions when problems are identified,” said Chairman James Comer

“I am honored to have been selected by Chairman GT Thompson and my colleagues to serve on the House Agriculture Committee. Western New York and the Southern Tier have a rich agriculture history from small family farms getting passed down from generation to generation to an up-and-coming agritourism destination. However, family farms have struggled as a result of policy changes from people who do not understand the agriculture industry. I will be a tireless fighter to protect their livelihood when the Farm Bill is up for negotiation and deliver results they need to thrive,” said Congressman Langworthy

“The House Committee on Agriculture will hit the ground running in the 118th Congress to address the many headwinds facing farm families and rural America. I am pleased to welcome to Rep. Langworthy to the Committee and I’m confident he will be a great agriculture advocate for upstate New York,” said Chairman Glenn “GT” Thompson

Congressman Nick Langworthy represents the 23rd Congressional District of New York which includes Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben Counties and parts of Erie County. Visit lanworthy.house.gov
