Gottheimer: “There is real power in Members coming together across the aisle to find opportunities to work together and move America forward.”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressmen Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Tom Reed (NY-23) were elected Co-Chairs of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus. Gottheimer committed even before being elected to Congress to bring Members together across party lines and find areas of agreement on key issues like lowering taxes and improving infrastructure to help the American people. Reed has been involved with the Problem Solvers Caucus since 2013. Both are eager to work to bring Members together to move the ball forward on the issues important to the American people.

Also at today’s meeting, Representatives Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) and Kurt Schrader (OR-5) were elected Senior Vice Chairs, and Mike Gallagher (WI-8) and Tom Suozzi (NY-3) were elected Vice Chairs.

“I’m honored to have been elected Co-Chair of the Problem Solvers’ Caucus with Tom, and I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work bringing people together on important issues like lowering taxes and improving our infrastructure,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. “There is real power in Members coming together across the aisle to find opportunities to work together and move America forward.”

“We are excited to lead with Josh,” said Congressman Tom Reed. “The Problem Solvers Caucus, nearly 40 members strong from both sides of the aisle, will be fighting for common sense principles that impact all Americans – Democrat, Republican, independent – everyone. It’s a new day in Washington and now is the time for us to work together with new energy to get things done for the American people.”
