Rep. Wittman has served his district well


Date published: 6/5/2014

Rep. Rob Wittman's friends and supporters should make certain they go to the polls Tuesday, June 10, to cast their vote in the Republican primary.

Wittman has represented the 1st Congressional District since December 2007, when he won a special election to replace the late Rep. Jo Ann Davis. He has been re-elected three more times.

He has achieved greater influence over his years of service. He is a member of the prestigious Armed Services Committee, and is chairman of its Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee. He also serves on the Subcommittee on Seapower and Expeditionary Forces. Wittman also serves as chairman of the board of visitors of the Naval Academy.

As a member of the conservative House Republican Study Committee, he is one of the House leaders in the fight to curb federal spending.

Wittman serves as a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, forging new ideas in efforts to protect and clean up the Chesapeake Bay, the 1st District's greatest natural treasure.

He is widely recognized as a strong supporter of veterans and fights for the best treatment possible for our retired and disabled vets and their families.

He advocates total respect for the Constitution in adopting laws governing the country. He does not support the current president's new efforts to act without Congress, using "a pen and a phone."

We are lucky to have such a hardworking person as our representative.

Please support Rob Wittman for Congress in the June 10 Republican primary.
