“2020 has been challenging, to say the least. A once-in-a-century pandemic has upended life for every one of us here in the Central Valley and across America,” said Cox. “Today, our businesses can’t open, our children can’t go to school, and our parents are locked in their homes. But in the face of adversity, we know that by working together, by looking out for one another, and by embracing the advice of our public health officials, we’re going to make it through this crisis - just like America has met every challenge it has ever faced. 

“The world is a lot different than it was when the 116th Congress began in 2019, but today, I want to share a bit about how we’ve worked together to push through this crisis and have started to rebuild, with the goal of not just getting back to normal, but to build a better, more just, and more equitable society.” he continued.   

Cox said that for the last two years, he had the privilege of representing California’s 21st Congressional District in the United States Congress. In that time, he and his colleagues worked on - and passed - legislation on water, immigration, healthcare, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, education, jobs, veterans issues, environmental protections, COVID relief, and measures to get the big money out of politics.  

“I’m not going to stop working until every Central Valley student has the same opportunities as any other kid in this nation. Not until every home in the Valley can trust the water coming out of its taps. Not until every citizen has access to not only a job, but a vocation that allows them to grow, provide, and thrive.” 

 Despite the work he’s done, Cox said there is still more work to do as he says he will continue to help Valley families.
