(Mays Landing, NJ)(Gloucestercitynews.net)-- – Today Congressman Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) delivered the following statement:
“I have had the opportunity to speak to the people of South Jersey. I have held Tele-Town Halls, gone to countless events, and met with thousands of the individuals who make up our community. Through this, there is one thing that has become predominantly clear to me: We must finalize these investigations and bring all of this to a conclusion in a timely manner. The people are exhausted with the bad gift that keeps on giving: the Mueller Report. They are tired of the investigations. They are tired of the accusations. They are tired of the reports. Every time it seems we are close to the finish line we take two steps back.
For the people of New Jersey’s Second Congressional District, it is most important that we work on the substantive issues that we can all find some bipartisan agreement on. Things like:
- Prescription Drug Prices
- Offshore Drilling
- North Korea
- Net Neutrality
- Border Security
Our primary goal here in Congress should be to work together to make sure that this term is not wasted on these investigations. Their continuation will only perpetuate civil unrest.
The fact is that there is an election in 18 months. I welcome any conversation with my colleagues here in Congress where we can talk about change in a bipartisan manner. I welcome conversations on improving the lives of Americans, on immigration, on healthcare, on any of the many issues that affect people every day. But what I am done with, barring any new evidence, is any talk of impeachment, investigations, or divisive, unproductive politics. It is time to move forward.
