  WELCOMING THE HONORABLE DEBBIE LESKO TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

  The SPEAKER. Without objection, the gentleman from Arizona (Mr. 
Gosar) is recognized for 1 minute.
  There was no objection.
  Mr. GOSAR. Mr. Speaker, Debbie Lesko has dedicated years of her life 
to public service, starting back in 2009, when she took the oath as a 
State legislator from Arizona, and then serving as a member of the 
Arizona Senate from 2015 to earlier this year.
  Her commitment and dedication to the people of Arizona will continue 
as she joins the House of Representatives and upholds her 
constitutional oath. The oath is a reminder to all of us standing here 
today that our duty is to support and defend the Constitution of the 
United States.
  I look forward to working together with our newest colleague to find 
commonsense solutions to the problems our Nation faces.
  Mr. Speaker, I yield to the gentlewoman from Arizona (Mrs. Lesko).
  Mrs. LESKO. Mr. Speaker, I have lost my voice from the allergies here 
in Washington, D.C., but I am truly honored to be here.
  Before I comment, I just wanted to introduce my family that is up in 
the gallery: my husband, Joe Lesko--thank you, Joe--my son, Jared 
Lesko; my daughter, Samantha Lesko; her fiance, Brandon Stealth; and my 
brother, Roger Lorenz.
  I am truly honored to be here to join you, and I look forward to 
working with you.
  I want to say to my constituents at home: Thank you so much for the 
privilege of your vote and for sending me here to Congress. I am 
thankful, and God bless you.
