Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement following the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

“Today, I look to the future with a renewed sense of optimism, knowing our nation is in the hands of strong, steady, and compassionate leaders who will unite us as we work to overcome the unprecedented challenges we face. I am confident that the Biden-Harris administration can and will harness the collective power of the American people to overcome the pandemic and lead us on the road to recovery.

The historic inauguration of Kamala Harris as our first female Vice President makes me even more optimistic for our future – a future in which little girls can see themselves as leaders in business, in science, in their communities, and in the White House. Let the glass ceiling broken by Vice President Harris today provide inspiration to the women and girls who will leave a trail of shattered glass in their own ascent to the highest levels of leadership.

I look forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration as Wisconsin and our nation recover from the pandemic and build back our economy better and stronger than ever.”
