WASHINGTON – Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement upon his swearing in Tuesday as the 20th congressman from Arkansas's Fourth Congressional District:

"It is a great honor and privilege to serve the hardworking taxpayers of Arkansas in their Fourth District office.  As we start the 114th Congress, I look forward to fighting for more freedom for my constituents who have seen nothing but hassles from President Obama and his administration's record of overreach.  This Congress will force the President to make a choice—whether to listen to people, or follow his own personal agenda.  I am looking forward to his choice."

The official swearing in at noon in the House chamber was followed by a ceremonial swearing in with Speaker Boehner in the Rayburn House Office Building. Westerman was joined for the ceremony by his wife, Sharon; children Eli and Asa; and his parents.

An open house was also held Tuesday at Westerman's Washington office for constituents to have a chance to visit with Westerman and the Fourth District staff. Additional district offices are open in Hot Springs at 101 Reserve Street, Pine Bluff at 101 E. 8th Avenue, Room 2521; and El Dorado at 101 N. Washington Street, Suite 406. Office hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time.
