Boulder City Magazine® December '06/January '07 Issue
by Jon C. Porter, Third District Congressman
I would like to personally thank you for your decision to re-elect me as your Representative in the United States Congress. It has truly been my pleasure serving you over the past 20 years as a Boulder City Councilman, Boulder City Mayor, Nevada State Senator and now United States Congressman.

|When I entered public service those many years ago, my reason for being in office was to always do the best that I could for the community in which I lived. As a father of two children, I understood how important it was to create a legacy for future generations. I wanted to put forth constructive solutions to solving some of the difficult challenges that we faced as a community - problems ranging from water quality to roads, safe neighborhoods to quality education. And as a community, we have experienced the ebbs and flows of growth and change in our region. Yet we have worked together to overcome many difficult challenges throughout the years and witness a remarkably positive change in our State.
Now, our nation faces many serious challenges. On November 7, 2006, the American people loudly and clearly demanded that the “business as usual” practice in Washington end immediately. I agree wholeheartedly. We must get back to working with our colleagues in a bipartisan fashion to find solutions to serious problems that affect our nation and the world. In the same way that our community sought solutions to fix the changes within the Southern Nevada area, so must the federal government work together to develop constructive answers to many of the problems plaguing every citizen across our land. Only by working together, can we change the direction of this country.
Again, I thank you all for your decision to support my re-election. As always, I want to hear your opinions about issues affecting our nation through your letters to my office, e-mails or phone calls. And, I continue to look forward to working with you all, not only over the next two years, but in the future years as well.
