Local Issues

The Congressman takes very seriously the responsibility that he has to represent local interests in Washington.  He is keenly aware of the nuances of and challenges facing this geographically diverse and expansive district.

Over the long term, the district lags beyond the country in job creation.  To fight this, Congressman Cartwright is working to create good paying jobs that cannot be outsourced and investing in the small business that drive economic growth. 

As an outgrowth of this, the Congressman is working to restore freight and passenger rail service to all parts of the district.
