WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) released the following statement on the 58th Presidential Inauguration:

“I congratulate President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on their inauguration.  Today’s celebration was one of American freedom and the peaceful transfer of power.  It is now important for the two elected branches of government to address the challenges confronting the Nation.  I stand ready to work in a bipartisan fashion to address these important issues and I will work to build the common ground to achieve the results the American people expect.”

Lance hosted over two hundred constituents from New Jersey who had entered a ticket lottery to attend the ceremony.
