Busy Days Ahead

Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (OH-15th-D) had her first day in the U.S. House of Representatives. Although she might be new in Congress, she is quickly getting to work.


...Kilroy's new office in Longworth featured bare walls save for a solitary poster of the Ohio Theatre. She spoke about the excitement of becoming a federal lawmaker, especially in a year when the first African-American will be inaugurated as president.

"It's a huge thing," Kilroy said.

Kilroy already has earned a seat on the Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over the banking industry.....

With the country left in such a mess, President Obama, Rep. Kilroy, and every member of Congress will need our prayers and support to get things fixed.
