(Gail & Alan Schwartz)

Tuesday January 20, Senator Gail Schwartz attended the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama, in Washington, D.C.

“It was an honor to be a part of this historic inauguration. As I stood in the crowd of millions of people and listened to the words of President Obama, I truly felt inspired to be a part of this new hope. I am very enthusiastic about working with the new administration to bring jobs to Colorado and particularly to District 5.”

It was wonderful to be surrounded by a crowd so unified and energized by the new President. We have all worked tirelessly to help get him elected, traveling to Washington to share in the day and personally be a part of history was remarkable. Everyone in attendance seemed committed to doing their part to help ensure President Obama’s success going forward.

The inauguration was a very inclusive occasion — the culmination of a nationwide team effort -- with a real feeling that we have helped change of the tide of our nation, and own a tiny piece of it. I look forward to working with the new administration to chart a better course for Colorado and our nation.
