Moulton Sworn-in to 115th Congress

In second term, Moulton committed to spurring economic development and standing up for veterans and working families

Washington, D.C. - Today, in the U.S. Capitol, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) was sworn-in to the 115th Congress to represent the Sixth District of Massachusetts. Moulton began the day by volunteering with staff and supporters at the Capital Area Food Bank in Washington, D.C. He also held an open house in his office.

“Serving the Sixth District is one of the great honors of my life,” said Moulton. “Our region has so much to offer, and our state is a leader in finding innovative solutions to national challenges. During the town hall events I’ve held in all 39 cities and towns across our district, I’ve heard about the issues that matter most to my constituents, and I remain committed to spurring economic development, standing up for our veterans, and ensuring that all our kids have access to a quality education. We have more work to do, and I pledge to continue to work with both Republicans and Democrats to ensure Massachusetts remains at the forefront of progress and opportunity.”

During his first term in Congress, Moulton made listening to his constituents a top priority, along with standing up for veterans and working families, and spurring economic development in the region.

  • Held more town halls than any Democrat in the U.S. House and Senate: Moulton held a town hall in each of the 39 cities and towns in the Sixth District, more town hall meetings than any Democrat in either the House or Senate.

  • Recovered $700K for Sixth District Constituents: Moulton’s office closed over 1,850 constituent cases, working with 60+ federal agencies, state, and local partners and other organizations, and recovered more than $700,000 for constituents through casework.

  • Introduced 10 bills, three passed the House, two signed into law: This Congress, Moulton introduced ten bills, five of which were focused on improving veterans’ lives, and nine of which had bipartisan support. Three of Moulton’s bills passed the U.S. House, a total which no other Freshman House Democrat has surpassed. Moulton’s Faster Care for Veterans billand the Essex River Dredging bill were signed into law last month.
