Rep. Claudia Tenney Signs Commitment to Civility
45 Freshman Members of Congress Release the “Commitment to Civility”
Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R—NY) joined a bipartisan group of 45 freshman members of the 115th U.S. Congress in signing a letter entitled the “Commitment to Civility.” The document recognizes the members’ agreements to restore collegiality, trust and civility to the Congress, encourage productive dialogue, and work to build consensus and the public's trust in our institutions.
“Through the commitment our class makes today, we promise to put people before politics, to thoughtfully advocate for the needs of our communities and to renew confidence and trust in our political system. We will work together peacefully to provide leadership and set an example for the American people, while remembering those who risked their lives and died to protect the freedoms and individual rights that make our nation the greatest in the world,” said Rep. Claudia Tenney. “It is my hope that the efforts made by our class today will inspire people throughout the nation to turn towards civility, to treat each other with respect and to work together constructively to further strengthen and unify our great nation.”
