Senator Cabrera Releases Statement Regarding the Inauguration of President Joe R. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris

HARTFORD, CT – Today, state Senator Jorge Cabrera (D-Hamden) released the following statement regarding Joe Biden’s swearing-in as the 46th President of the United States of America:

“Congratulations to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris,” said Sen. Cabrera. “There is something rather poetic about an incoming administration inaugurating our country’s first Black, South Asian female vice president on the heels of the previous administration. It is a symbol of who we are as a nation. As I watched the inauguration, taking place at the same site of the heinous terror attack on January 6, I was reminded of our nation’s strength and our democracy’s resiliency. The months and years ahead may not be easy. However, today should be a symbol to all, regardless of political affiliation, that the United States of America can accomplish great things when we do so together. I wish the Biden administration the best of luck.”
