Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Election of Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House of Representatives
"Paul Ryan is tremendously well-respected on both sides of the aisle, and I think he has the skills to make an effective speaker.
“As I've said all along, the folks outside of the Washington bubble care less about who is leading them than about whether Congress can deliver results. We just passed a responsible two-year budget that keeps spending down and doesn't raise taxes; my first bill, the Securing the Cities Act, passed the House last week: Work is getting done in Washington, and I look forward to working with the new speaker to build on what we've accomplished here recently."
-- Congressman Donovan represents Staten Island and South Brooklyn in Congress, and is New York City’s only Republican representative.
