Washington, DC – Congressman John Curtis issued the following statement after Congress finally voted to open the government.
In my 57 years, I’ve had a lot of offices but nothing like this one. I sit on the second floor of the Rayburn Building in a space formally occupied by Congressman Jason Chaffetz. My office within our larger office is big. To put it in prospective there are 12 of us in the office and my office takes up about 1/3 of the space.
