Pelosi Statement on Retirement of Congressman Jim Matheson

San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on Congressman Jim Matheson’s announcement today that he will not seek re-election in 2014:

“Jim Matheson has always been a strong and independent voice in Congress, and a tenacious advocate for his constituents back home in Utah.  He is a champion of fiscal responsibility who appreciates the importance of investing in our nation’s infrastructure to put people to work today strengthening our competitiveness for tomorrow.  We are fortunate to have such a committed and experienced legislator in our caucus, and are sorry to see him go.

“Congressman Matheson will be missed by friends and colleagues on both sides of the aisle.  We wish him, his wife Amy and his two sons all the best in their next chapter.”
