Pelosi Statement on the Retirement Announcement of Rep. Rick Nolan
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after Congressman Rick Nolan of Minnesota announced that he would be retiring at the end of his term:
“Congressman Rick Nolan has dedicated his entire life to fighting on behalf of the working families of Minnesota. During his decades of public service, Congressman Nolan’s tireless commitment to the hard-working men and women of the North Star State has never faltered.
“Throughout his many years in Congress, Congressman Nolan never forgot his Minnesota roots and values. He has worked tirelessly to build a brighter future for all Americans, advancing bold investments in infrastructure, education and jobs. As a strong voice on the Agriculture and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees, he has fought passionately for our nation’s workers, retirees and rural communities. A lifelong progressive champion, Congressman Nolan fought to overturn Citizens United and to create vital consumer safeguards that continue to ensure that the pocketbooks of the privileged few do not drown out the voices of the American people.
“Congressman Nolan’s insight, passion and leadership will be missed by friends and colleagues on both sides of the aisle. We wish him, his wife Mary and his entire family all the best on this new chapter of their journey.”
