Dear Friend, 

On January 30th, I made the decision to retire at the end of my term after 40 years in Congress. It has been a great honor to serve the people of Los Angeles in the House of Representatives for all these years. It was a difficult decision, but I leave proud of my record of service and with the conviction that, even in this polarized environment, Congress can be a force for good.  

I hope you’ll take a moment to read more about my years of work on behalf of the people of Southern California.

But my work is not yet finished. In my remaining ten months, I will continue to do all I can to advance the priorities of the residents of the 33rd Congressional District and to assist constituents who need the help of federal agencies to resolve problems and get answers to questions. I hope you’ll continue to keep in touch about latest developments in Congress by joining my newsletter or following me on Facebook


My full statement about my retirement is available on my website.    


You can read a report [pdf] outlining my record in Congress. 


It has been my great pleasure to serve you in Congress.
