WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman-Elect Bruce Poliquin of Oakland, serving the people of Western, Central, Northern and Downeast Maine in the next Congress, has been chosen by the U.S. House of Representatives leadership to serve on one of the top committees in Washington.
Bruce Poliquin has been tapped to serve on the prestigious House Financial Services Committee, placing the Congressman-Elect at the center of some of the most important financial issues facing the country. The Committee handles issues in our nation’s housing, banking, credit union, insurance, and other parts of our economy.
“I’m humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve the hard-working people of Maine on the House Financial Services Committee. I look forward to standing up for the interests of our families and small businesses on one of the most important Committees in Washington,” said Congressman-Elect Poliquin.
“It’s critical that Maine families have access to affordable and stable home mortgages and automobile loans. Maine consumers should be confident that their bank and credit card accounts are safe and secure. Our small businesses need available loans so they can grow and hire more workers. Washington should do everything it can to help our job creators be successful instead of smothering them with red tape. And, government must work tirelessly to protect our consumers during their everyday lives,” stated Poliquin.
“As I’ve said all along, Washington needs to stick up for our families and taxpayers, and oppose future bank bailouts should this idea ever surface on my watch,” he added.
Poliquin, a small business owner and former Maine State Treasurer, will be sworn in to the 114th Congress on January 6.
