Statemen of Senator Christine Cohen on Today’s Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

State Senator Christine Cohen (D-Guilford) today issued the following statement on the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:

“The inauguration of Joe Biden as America’s 46th president brings a renewed sense of optimism and promise. I look forward to President Biden and Vice President Harris — our first female vice-president and first vice-president of color — uniting our country once again with the goal of improved well-being for all. I am thrilled to see the nomination and hopeful installation of a very diverse and qualified set of cabinet appointees who really represent the breadth and depth of ethnic and racial diversity in America, in addition to the tremendous skillset they bring to the table. There is a sense of focus around the issues that concern us all and unite us as Americans: fighting the coronavirus, delivering financial relief to families in need, growing jobs and the economy, expanding access to health care and creating a cleaner environment. I have high hopes for this incredible team to bring our nation together, repair foreign relations, heal open wounds, and bring us toward a brighter, healthier and more prosperous future.”
