(WKTV) - 19Th Congressional District Representative Antonio Delagado was sworn into his second term in Congress this past weekend.
Now he wants his constituents to know how things are going in the eleven counties he represents, and what he plans to do for them in the year ahead.
On Monday, he held a live State of the District Address on his official Facebook page to address those issues.
Some of the highlights included what’s being done to combat the coronavirus and its effect on people and small businesses locally, but he also spoke about the little things that are important to community members.
He pointed out that one of his Bills, The Fairness for Local Veterans Cemeteries Act, had passed through the House and Senate.
He also stressed the need to grow infrastructure and provide affordable housing in the 19th district.
"I will remain a member of the committees on small business, agriculture, transportation, and infrastructure. Not the most high profile committees in Congress by any means, but by far the ones that meet the needs of our district."
Delgado says being on these committees will allow him to use his leverage to help the many farms and small businesses in his district thrive, despite challenging economic circumstances
