Rep. Connie Conway (CA-22), the newest Republican Member of the House of Representatives, was sworn into office today at the U.S. Capitol.
Rep. Conway has extensive ties to the community she now represents in Congress, previously serving many of her constituents on the Tulare County Board of Supervisors and in the California State Assembly. During her time in the Assembly, Rep. Conway was elected by her Republican colleagues as their Republican Leader.
In August 2019, she was appointed by President Trump to be the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency’s California Executive Director. There, Rep. Conway was instrumental in delivering resources for California’s farmers and ranchers.
Upon her swearing-in, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy issued the following statement:
“As the Assembly Republican Leader, Connie has a demonstrable record of fighting for her constituents and standing up to Sacramento’s Democrat-led government overreach. Here in Congress, she will be a stalwart defender against the radical policies pushed by House Democrats and President Biden’s administration. Congresswoman Conway, with her experience at the USDA, will be a critical partner in championing the Central Valley’s way of life, and I look forward to working with her on the issues impacting our districts and the American people.”
