As originally released by the Committee on Education & Labor

WASHINGTON, DC Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03), the Chairman of the Committee on Education and Labor, released the following statement after President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, the first woman and person of color to hold this position, were announced the winners of the 2020 election. 

“This election, Americans made a clear choice.  They chose hope over fear, unity over division, and science over fiction. In the midst of a global pandemic and economic crisis, Americans expect us to lead. It is now our responsibility to fulfill that expectation by working with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on behalf of all Americans.

“Governing should be guided by the values and aspirations we share. The Committee on Education and Labor will continue fighting for equitable public education; strong workers’ rights; and quality, affordable health care.  We look forward to working with all of our colleagues to pursue our shared goal: improving the lives of people from all walks of life.”
