Washington, D.C. – Representative Paul Mitchell (MI-10) released the following statement today after being sworn in to the 115th Congress as Representative of Michigan’s Tenth Congressional District:

“I am honored and humbled by the responsibility entrusted to me by my fellow citizens of Michigan’s 10th District. 

I come from humble beginnings as the oldest son of a General Motors line worker. I have lived the American dream, built on hard work from the first day of my first job in high school.  I ran for Congress with the goal of helping people achieve their American dream that an unstable economy and failed policies have put beyond their reach.

Our nation is now faced with great challenges, ranging from a changing economy, an anti-jobs tax code, crippling debt, and threats to our way of life from terrorists and foreign aggressors.  I stand ready to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to help bring good paying jobs to our nation and to Michigan, to ensure our workforce is adequately trained for the modern economy, to rein in federal spending, and to take measures necessary to protect our freedoms.

To the over 700,000 residents of Michigan’s Tenth Congressional District: You are my new bosses, and I am eager and honored to begin working for you.”

Representative Mitchell is a graduate of Michigan State University and has been a resident of Michigan since the age of eleven.  He dedicated his career to workforce training from his service to the State of Michigan, his time at Chrysler, and ultimately as CEO of Ross Education. Mitchell and his wife Sherry live with their family on a farm in Dryden, Michigan.
