In case you missed my statement on last night's #JointAddress ⇩
“Tonight, we heard from a president who wants to put the interests of the American people first and one who is willing to reach across the aisle to accomplish that goal,” said Davis. “President Trump spoke about bipartisan issues like investing in infrastructure, affordable childcare, simplifying our tax code, and honoring those who keep our nation safe, including our men and women in blue, military members, and veterans. These are areas where lawmakers should be able to find agreement, but we need partners in the House and the Senate who are willing to look past the next election and work with us to tackle the big issues. The American people deserve it. I stand ready and willing to work with anyone on these issues and others important to my district.”
Tonight, President Trump will deliver his first Joint Session Address to Congress. Among other important issues, I hope to hear the president speak about law enforcement, their families, and uniting communities. Elizabeth Snyder and her brother, St. Louis County Police Officer Justin Sparks, will be in the balcony tonight to share their stories. Here's a preview by KSDK NewsChannel 5 -->
This morning, I had the privilege of meeting with a group of African American leaders from Madison County regarding a variety of issues, including mental health reform, jobs and employment, privacy issues, and criminal justice reform. Thanks to my friend Dr. Ed Hightower for putting the meeting together.
