Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Vote to Avert a Government Shutdown
September 30, 2015

“I will never vote to shut down the government, period. 720,000 Staten Islanders and Brooklynites sent me to Washington to make government more efficient and effective, not to suspend its operations.

“We need to come together to deliver solutions and stop pointing fingers at one another. The public doesn’t elect us to shut down government when we don’t get our way – nor do they elect us to recklessly spend their hard-earned tax dollars by ringing up $18 trillion in debt. Let’s focus our energy on finding solutions for our nation’s problems, including our debt crisis. In the meantime, I’ll continue voting to keep the lights on and the government running.”

-- Congressman Donovan represents Staten Island and South Brooklyn in Congress, and is New York City’s only Republican representative.
