Larsen sacks aides after Tweets reveal boozy office antics


Congressman Rick Larsen has fired three aides after learning of their indiscreet tweets bragging about on-the-job drinking and insulting their boss. The Democratic Representative in Washington sacked the trio - Seth Burroughs, Elizabeth Robblee and Ben Byers - shortly after a report by the online NW Daily Marker outlined their Twitter feeds from August to early December. The tweets made repeated references to 'December to Remember' (D2R)- a phrase coined by the trio of staffers to define their attempt to spend the final month of the year in a state drunkenness. ...

Larsen Quizzes U.S. Transportation Secretary on Trump Plan to Privatize Air Traffic Control
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02), the top-Ranking Democrat on the House Aviation Subcommittee, today helped lead a hearing on reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). During the hearing, Larsen was highly critical of President Trump’s plan to privatize America’s air traffic control (ATC) system and had tough questions for hearing witness, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao. Watch Larsen’s opening statement HERE. Watch Larsen’s Q&A with Secretary Chao HERE. Larsen and Chao’s exchange focused on the administration’s plan to transfer existing assets to a new, privatized entity free of charge and without remuneration to the government. Larsen pressed the Secretary, asking whether the national assets of the air traffic control system have zero value. Secretary Chao: “they are not worth zero of course. But that has to be worked out.” Larsen responded: “well if they are not worth zero [dollars] then it doesn’t seem that we should tr
Thank you
Friends, We had a big win for the 2nd District this week. The numbers are still coming in, but it looks like we may well see voter support at more than 65%. I see this overwhelming support as a firm foundation and mandate for me to continue to focus on the priorities I have set: addressing climate change, protecting the environment, fighting for transportation investments and jobs, and making sure veterans get the resources they have earned. I want to thank you for all of the support you have provided to me and my campaign. With your help, we knocked on 15,623 doors and made 15,369 phone calls. You helped bring this victory to the finish line. That said, I know that the results of the presidential election may have left many disappointed and dispirited. As President Obama and Secretary Clinton both stated, we must come together for the good of our country now. I expect to have some strong differences with the incoming administration, but I am committed to working together where I can,
One Week Ago
Friends – I know many of you are feeling disappointed and dispirited from the election. It still hurts that a week ago, Donald Trump became our President-elect. Trump’s rhetoric has left some of our friends and neighbors scared. Scared that their families may be separated. Scared that our progress as a nation may be impeded. Scared that they may no longer have a place in this great country. I hear that anxiety and fear. I will stand up and fight hateful rhetoric, decisions and actions from President-elect Trump. That starts today. I have strong differences with the incoming administration. But I am committed to working together where I can, and resisting where I must. The state of our country calls me to action. We must start today. We must start the work of building coalitions to be prepared for the next fight. Please stand with me today as our work is clearly not done. Rick
Voter Pamphlet Statement
I was born and raised in Arlington. Representing the 2nd District is an honor. I approach each day guided by what I hear from local families and small businesses. They want a champion to help them face their challenges and create opportunities to grow the middle class. A strong and vibrant middle class is the foundation of the American dream. I’m committed not just to making that dream more accessible to anyone who’s willing to work hard and play by the rules, but to protecting people from the forces in Washington, D.C. that are trying to pull the middle class apart. This means I’m working to build an economy that creates jobs by investing in infrastructure, make education affordable and accessible, and increase skills and training opportunities that prepare our workforce to compete. And I am fighting to establish the 2nd District as a center for renewable energy innovation to protect our environment and grow our economy. Strengthening our middle class also means fighting for p
