Outgoing U.S. Representative from New York Nita Lowey recently delivered farewell remarks on the House floor.
Lowey, who did not seek re-election to the 17th District after 16 terms, thanked her family, staff and colleagues.
“And while I leave Congress as the first Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, the title I still cherish most is United States Representative from New York,” Lowey said.
She then concluded her Sunday remarks.
“With gratitude for having had the honor and privilege to serve, I yield back the balance of my time,” Lowey said.
Fellow Democrat Congressman-elect Mondaire Jones succeeds Lowey in the district that includes all of Rockland and portions of Westchester County.
