Congresswoman Bourdeaux Votes To Avoid Government Shutdown

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux released the following statement after voting to keep the government open:

Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux said, “I voted in favor of the continuing resolution in order to prevent a shutdown that would have been detrimental to the economy and American families. Keeping the government open means that social security payments don’t lapse, our military members and federal employees continue to receive their paychecks, and the economy doesn’t suffer. I look forward to the President signing this bill to continue vital services.”


Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux lives with her family in Suwanee, Georgia, and represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District in the 117th Congress. Carolyn is a strong advocate for affordable health care, and economic recovery that puts workers and small businesses first, and investing in her district’s world-class public education system and transportation infrastructure. 

Georgia’s fast-changing 7th Congressional District includes portions of the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area, including portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties and cities Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Sugar Hill, Norcross, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Snellville, Lilburn, Suwanee, Grayson, and Buford
