Congressman Anthony Brown: Leader Hoyer Has Earned His Place in History

“As Leader Hoyer prepares to leave his post as Majority Leader, I have no doubt that he will continue to serve his constituents and our country with the same diligence and sense of duty”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) released the following statement on Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer’s announcement that he will not run for House leadership:

“Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is a force in American life and politics. For decades, he has lent his formidable leadership, considerable legislative talents, and clear voice to the House of Representatives. He has earned his place in history as one of the most consequential leaders Congress has ever known. 

“In times of crisis and progress, the American people and the Marylanders we serve could always count on Leader Hoyer to have his steady hand on the hard work of governance. Leader Hoyer is a consummate public servant and patriot, who has accomplished an extraordinary amount of good for our nation. He has done so, always, with respect for his colleagues and a strong belief in the shared values we are sworn to uphold regardless of party.

“Through thick and thin, triumphs and setbacks, Leader Hoyer has stood by my side. From my earliest days serving in the Maryland state legislature, as Lt. Governor and my unsuccessful run for Governor, to welcoming me to Congress and encouraging my desire to continue serving the people of Maryland. Together, we’ve delivered for our communities and the families who call them home. We’ve delivered progress for our veterans and built a strong foundation for growth in Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties.

“As Leader Hoyer prepares to leave his post as Majority Leader, I have no doubt that he will continue to serve his constituents and our country with the same diligence and sense of duty that he has brought to his work for forty years. Leader Hoyer is a mentor, friend, and legend both in Maryland and around the country. He understands how much we can accomplish when we are united. I look forward to his many years of continued service and partnership.”
