Joint Address to Congress
Following President Biden's Joint Address to Congress, LACDP Chair Mark Gonzalez issued the following statement:
“Tonight, President Biden reminded us that America is “on the move” and building back better. From his investments in the American family and worker, focus on ending this pandemic, fighting for enact police reform and ending the gun epidemic, opening back up America, leading our allies around the world, and putting us in a position to be competitive in this ever-changing world. Historically flanked by Vice President Harris and Speaker Pelosi, the President laid out a plan that I hope will receive bipartisan support. They barely stood tonight, but let’s hope Republicans will help stand for the American people. Los Angeles Democrats will stand with this president, and Democratic leaders all across the country to remind Americans that we are here to lead."
