Good evening and welcome to our 2020 Year-End Update.
When I ran for U.S. Congress in 2018, I promised that I would be open, transparent and communicate directly with all of you on a regular basis. Serving in Congress is not an "I" effort, but a "WE" effort. That is why each week, I make it a point to send out a weekly update recapping the latest news and recap the work we are doing on behalf of our District, Commonwealth and our nation. I hope you enjoy these weekly updates and be sure to keep up with our latest activities by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
I can't say enough about what President Donald J. Trump has delivered for our nation. As a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump, I co-chaired the congressional fundraising efforts in Pennsylvania for the President's campaign. My wife, Shelley and I, maxed out to the President's campaign personally and contributed the maximum donation possible from our campaign. Throughout the campaign, I spoke countless times at rallies, volunteer events and supported the President through my media interviews.
Like me, the President is a businessman. He understands what it means to sign the front of a paycheck and he made decisions and put together an agenda that helped the United States economy reach heights not witnessed in the modern era. Reducing taxes, eliminating unnecessary regulations and negotiating pro-American trade deals led to record low unemployment and a bustling economy. Even after the pandemic forced the President to shut down large sectors of the economy temporarily, he already has the economy on the road to recovery.
Many expected it would take our economy years to recover. Instead, we have seen an unprecedented rebound only limited by the draconian lockdown efforts on small businesses by blue-state governors. Want proof? A few months ago, our nation's GDP grew at a 33.1% rate in the third quarter of 2020. That is the fastest rate of growth in our nation's history.
This President has accomplished more over the past four years than many have done in eight.
Congressman Dan Meuser Secures Endorsement from Pennsylvania State Troopers Association
Meuser Secures Endorsement of the Fraternal Order of Police Phillip C. Melley Memorial Lodge #65
POTTSVILLE - The Meuser for Congress campaign released the following statement from U.S. Congressman Dan Meuser as he earns endorsement of the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association and the Fraternal Order of Police Phillip C. Melley Memorial Lodge #65:
“Having the endorsement of our Pennsylvania State Troopers and the FOP Memorial Lodge #65 is humbling. As the son of a retired police officer, supporting our brave law enforcement officers is something I take personally. These brave men and women selflessly leave their families every morning, not knowing if they will return home, to keep our communities and our families safe. I will always stand with these brave individuals and vote to ensure they have the tools and support necessary. The first priority of every elected official is to ensure the public’s safety. The best way to do that is to stand solidly behind law enforcement… more now than ever.”
Pottsville: Dan Meuser released the following statement after winning the election for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 9th District.
“First of all, I want to thank the voters for the faith they have placed in me to represent the 9th Congressional District in the U.S. Congress.,” Meuser said. “This was a hard fought election and I have to thank our volunteers, supporters, elected officials and our campaign team for their tireless dedication to our campaign. Campaigning is a WE effort and tonight’s results prove that. I also must thank my wife Shelley, my children and our entire family and friends for their support and encouragement. I couldn’t have done this without the sacrifices and support they gave me.
