Letter: Thank You Voters

I am writing to express my gratitude to the Hicksville community for electing me to serve in the 113th Congress. As I return to the House of Representatives to represent the people of New York’s new 3rd Congressional District, please know that I am grateful for your support, and I am honored to stand up for the values we share.

As we approach the start of a new year, we face many challenges. I am eager to get back to work, fighting harder than ever to protect our veterans and seniors, New York’s middle class families, and small businesses that want to create jobs here at home. Thanks to your support, I’ll be able to continue working to reform our tax code to recognize the high cost-of-living in New York, while leading the charge to make college more affordable for students. I am committed to New York’s middle class families – and I’m looking forward to fighting on your behalf in the halls of Congress.

Finally, please know that my door is always open. I am proud of the record I have built, not only on Capitol Hill, but here at home as a problem solver for my constituents. I’ve gone to bat for families battling insurance companies, small businesses trying to stay afloat, and veterans caught up in the VA’s red tape – and I’d be proud to go to work for you too.  If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office and we’ll get right to work.

I look forward to working with you and growing our partnership in the years to come. Thank you again for allowing me the privilege of representing you in Congress.

Congressman Steve Israel
