Washington, D.C. – On Thursday, Jan. 3, Representative-Elect Scott Peters will take the oath of office with the other members of 113th Congress. The Vice-President and the Speaker of the House will administer the oath during the first session of the 113th Congress on the floor of the House of Representatives at noon EST (9 a.m. PST).
“I’m honored and eager to be taking the oath of office next week. Personally, it will be the culmination of an exciting year for my family and me,” Peters said. “But mostly, I am enthusiastic about getting to work for San Diego,” he added. His wife and their two children will join Peters at the ceremony.
On the morning of the swearing-in, Peters and his family will participate in a bi-partisan prayer service at St. Peters Catholic Church in D.C. Additionally, on Jan. 3 Peters will host an Open House in his Capitol Hill office, to celebrate the occasion. The Open House will be held from noon to 4 p.m., at 2410 Rayburn HOB, Washington, D.C. To RSVP for the Open House, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Peters’ District Director MaryAnne Pintar encouraged residents of the 52nd District, and Peters’ other friends and supporters, to participate in the swearing in by watching the proceedings on CSPAN where they will be aired live, and by posting a message on Peters’ Facebook page.
“So many people contributed to the success of the campaign and helped send Scott to Washington,” Pintar said. “We can’t all be in D.C. for the big day, but we can all be a part of it by sending him well wishes on Facebook or Twitter. I know it would mean a lot to him to hear from people back home on this important day. He's going to need a lot of support from San Diego.”
