Adams' January in Review

Feb 2, 2021
Press Release

Greetings!

This January in Congress has been unlike any other.

On the first Wednesday, an insurrection caused in no small part by the outgoing President breached the Capitol for the first time in over 200 years. On the second Wednesday, we voted for an impeachment necessitated by the attack the week before. 

On the third Wednesday, we celebrated the inauguration of a new President and a historic Vice President, but the day was very different due to the pandemic. The Biden-Harris Administration got to work immediately to improve our response to COVID-19.

Nevertheless, through all of these events, your Congress has continued to work for you. The continuity of government and peaceful transition of power was preserved. My office and my staff have been working tirelessly for you, even after a cowardly attack on their workplace.

Please enjoy a summary of our January activities below.

Sincerely,

Rep. Alma S. Adams, Ph.D

This month, Rep. Adams penned an editorial for USA Today about why she voted to impeach former President Trump - and why the Senate must vote to convict him for his role in the attack on the Capitol. You can read it here:USA Today: Convict Trump at His Impeachment Trial
