Press Release

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – Today, Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA) released the following statement.

“I appreciate that President Trump was the first person to step forward and end this shutdown. Our government will be reopened and our public servants will be paid for all of their hard work. Speaker Pelosi has stated numerous times that she was willing to work on border security, including barriers where appropriate, once the federal government is reopened and operating. Let’s hope she and her party are willing keep their word and come to the negotiating table. With everything that has happened, it is easy to be cynical about the state of affairs for our nation. We need to remember that there is much more that unites us as Americans than divides us.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee, the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and the Budget Committee.
