Congressman Hank Johnson's July 13 E-Newsletter
As President Trump, members of his family and Administration continue to top headlines for their ties with Russian officials, I have continued to fight for you on the issues, including improving the Affordable Care Act (ACA), tax reform and ensuring our election and voting systems are secure.
I recently co-hosted a town hall with State Rep. Doreen Carter in the district on health care, and I look forward to talking to you in more detail in my upcoming August recess when I return to the district. I will remain diligent on the issues that matter to the 4th District, whether it be veteran affairs, immigration, transportation projects, housing, equal opportunities and equal rights or Social Security benefits to name a few.
And of course, I will continue to fight to hold Washington accountable to you.
