WASHINGTON, D.C.--   On Sunday, January 3, Rep. Jack Bergman was sworn in to the 117th Congress to serve his 3rd term. He released the following statement: 

"I’m grateful and honored that the constituents of the First District have entrusted me to serve as their Representative in Washington for another term. Since day one, we’ve successfully fought to cut taxes and red tape, get a new Soo Lock underway, support our workers and small businesses, protect our rights, preserve our way of life, and keep our Great Lakes beautiful. I’m excited to serve in this new Congress and will continue to show up every day to fight for every First District constituent.”

The First District currently consists of 44% of the land mass of the State of Michigan. Prior to serving in Congress, Rep.
