Rep. McNerney Releases Statement on Upcoming Presidential Inauguration

Jan 17, 2017
Press Release

Stockton, CA – Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) issued the following statement regarding the upcoming presidential inauguration.

“I will not be attending the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump on January 20th.  Instead, I will be in my district serving my constituents, as I was elected to do. 

“The election of Mr. Trump lacks legitimacy due to Russian hacking, which Mr. Trump encouraged, the FBI’s biased involvement, and other irregularities, and I cannot sanction the inauguration by attending the ceremony. However, because I support the peaceful transition of power and respect the office of the presidency, I will work with the new administration when possible to deliver for my district and move our country forward.”
