MADISON – Today, President Joseph R. Biden was inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States, and Vice-President Kamala D. Harris was inaugurated as the 49th Vice-President of the United States. Rep. Stubbs (D-77) released the following statement:

“I want to congratulate President Biden on becoming the 46th President of the United States, and I look forward to seeing his administration succeed over these next four years.  After four years of divisiveness, it is refreshing to see compassionate leadership enter the White House”

“It cannot be overstated that today is a historic day for women, especially women of color. As a Black and South Asian American, Vice-President Kamala D. Harris is now the first person of color to serve as Vice-President. In addition, Vice-President Harris is the first woman to ever hold this position. As a Black woman, it is inspiring to see someone with my shared experience help lead our country into a better tomorrow. I hope all young woman of color will think back today, and remember that there is no limit on what they can accomplish.”

“This new era of leadership will move our country into a more equitable future. While there is still so much work to be done, I am excited to see what this new administration will accomplish. It is refreshing to know that the Executive branch of our federal government is in the hands of these two dedicated public servants”
