Engel Statement on Rep. Nita Lowey Announcing She Will Not Seek Re-election

Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement:

“Nita Lowey has been an outstanding advocate and representative for her constituents for many years. She is also a trailblazer with a strong record of legislative achievement in Washington. As a longtime member of the Appropriations Committee and its first female chair, Nita knocked down barriers and helped move some of the most consequential bills we have ever passed, including record funding for education and environmental protection. Locally, Nita was and is an outstanding partner in government, always willing to work together to get things done for our communities.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve with Nita, and though I will miss having her as my Congressional neighbor to the north, I will always cherish our friendship. I wish her and Steve nothing but the best.”
