LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) continued his economic focus Thursday addressing the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce and discussing his plan to invest in the American worker by strengthening American manufacturing to create opportunity for all.

“Americans and American business deserve policies and solutions that empower them - and common sense reforms that inspire innovation, job creation and opportunity,” said Fitzpatrick. “To achieve any of these worthy goals we need public-private participation, bipartisanship and commitment. By working together we lay the groundwork for the achievement of hard-working American families and the success of the American economy.”
Fitzpatrick was the keynote speaker at the chamber’s Business Connect meeting held at Cairn University. In his remarks, Fitzpatrick highlighted bipartisan legislation introduced and passed through the House, as well as initiatives focused on empowering workers and families through educational, regulatory and tax reform, advancement of American-made standards and investment in infrastructure.
“I have confidence in the American spirit and the resilience of Americans, knowing that is what will take us to the goal line,” added Fitzpatrick. “I’m working, each day, in the Capitol and in Bucks County to help remove some of the obstacles, we’ve talked about today, while helping provide the tools that will drive the economic engine and get us where we want to be.”     
Following the address, Fitzpatrick answered a series of questions, including on the topics of the need for increased bipartisanship, tax reform and declaring American energy independence.
”We are always excited and honored to have Congressman Fitzpatrick speak at one of our events,” said Dan Bates, president of the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce. “Our members come to this monthly morning breakfast meeting for pertinent information and the Congressman is always willing to give us updates on the most critical issues and what he feels are the top priorities of discussion for the business community here in Lower Bucks.”
The Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce consists of over 1,000 members representing small, medium and large business and professional firm across 22 municipalities in Lower Bucks County.

BENSALEM, PA – At a ceremony Friday, Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) presented Mae Schlosser of Bensalem with five medals earned by her late father during World War II more than 70 years ago, but were never received.

Raymond Kelly served in the United States Navy during World War II from October 1943 to May 31, 1944, and saw action in multiple theaters. Kelly’s flotilla was active in Arawe, Cape Gloucester, Finschafen, Talasea, Saidor, Aitape, Hollandia, and the Schouten Islands.

“Americans from each generation have put their lives on the line in the name of freedom and the service of others. That service and sacrifice deserves to be recognized – including that of Mr. Kelly,” said Fitzpatrick. “I’m grateful to have the opportunity today to right a wrong and award these medals to Mr. Kelly’s daughter. Each veteran deserves the support and acknowledgment of a grateful nation.”

Kelly earned, never received, the Navy Good Conduct Medal, the World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal, the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal & Four Bronze Star Appurtenances, and the European-Africa-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal. Each medal was presented to his daughter, along with a congressional certificate and an American flag flown over the Capitol Building.

“I really appreciate Congressman Fitzpatrick’s help, it’s a thrill,” said Ms. Schlosser. “The items from today will be passed down for generations; the flag to one daughter and the medals to the other.”

Fitzpatrick’s staff includes Military and Veteran’s Affairs caseworkers who are available to assist Bucks and Montgomery county veterans and families with military records, federal agencies requests, VA benefits and more. Please contact the Congressman’s Langhorne District office at 1717 Langhorne-Newtown Rd., Suite 400, Langhorne or by phone at 215-579-8102.

LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) released the following statement Thursday regarding the continued incarceration of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi in Mexico:
 “For over 100 days, Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been detained in Mexico under circumstances yet to be resolved.  Sgt. Tahmooressi, a Afghanistan combat veteran, is being denied the treatment he needs in connection to his service for our country – a fact I and other lawmakers have sought to convey to Mexican authorities.
 I am working with members of both parties from across the nation to advocate for his immediate release. While there is work to be done on his behalf from Congress, it is my hope that this administration takes a more active role in increasing diplomatic pressure on Mexico to expedite Sgt. Tahmooressi’s release and reunite him with his family.
 There are Americans wrongfully detained all over the world - we should always remember them and work toward their freedom.”
 Fitzpatrick has joined lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to draw attention and action to Sgt. Tahmoorseei’s situation, including: 
Letter to Jesus Murillo Karam, Attorney General of Mexico – Bipartisan letter to the Attorney General of Mexico calling on the Mexican legal system to deal with Sgt. Tahmooressi’s case expeditiously and fairly.
 H. Res. 620 – Bipartisan resolution calling on the government of Mexico to immediately release Sgt. Tahmooressi and return him to the United States and compelling the President of the United States to do all that he can to secure that release. 
Letter to Fernando Benitez, Defense Attorney – Bipartisan letter in support of Sgt. Tahmooressi’s defense attorney and calling for continued diligence and increased pressure in the case.
 Letter to Victor Octavio Luna Escobedo, Presiding Judge – Bipartisan letter calling on the judge ruling in Sgt. Tahmooressi’s case to consider the specific, unique circumstances of the case and move to dismiss the case.
