Today, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Congressman Tom Reed (NY-23), Co-Chairs of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, met with a bipartisan group of 13 mayors and municipal officials at the Arena Diner in Hackensack.
The group discussed best practices for local leaders to boost their federal return on investment, bring businesses to their towns, and work with their bipartisan colleagues to solve problems.
“I am always proud to call Congressman Tom Reed a partner in breaking the gridlock and getting to yes on common-sense solutions for our country, but I am even more proud to call Tom a friend. Today, Fifth District mayors heard that there are Congressmen on both sides of the aisle who are interested in working together to solve problems for their constituents, like the Gateway project,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5).
“The Problem Solvers Caucus is working to change the culture in Washington. A culture that believes in attacking problems not people. Representative Gottheimer and I have worked to lead conversations about some of the nastiest and most politically divided issues facing our country today – and together – have put forward bipartisan proposals that work to solve them for the people back home. I am proud to call Josh a friend and would like to thank him for inviting me to the New Jersey Fifth District with him today,” said Congressman Tom Reed (NY-23).
