Congresswoman Anna Eshoo Term Limits Herself and Relinquishes Ranking Member Post, Turns Attention to Health Care

January 12th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) issued the following statement on her position with the Communications and Technology Subcommittee.

“During my time as Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, I have advocated for American consumers, advanced competition, worked to keep the internet open, accessible and free; delivered greater broadband deployment, increased public access to the internet, and advanced the use of technology across all sectors of our economy as it has become integral to our daily lives.  It has been a privilege to do so.

“But such a privilege is something to be shared, not hoarded. I believe that everyone in our Caucus has a great deal to offer and that our Party’s leaders should be chosen based on merit, energy and integrity, all hallmarks of my congressional district.”

“Senior members like myself must consider the best interest of our Party and our need to develop leaders for the future.  In other words, it’s time to walk my talk. I therefore am not seeking to be reelected Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee.”

“Instead, I’m asking to retain a seat on the Subcommittee and to hopefully join the Health Subcommittee where I worked for many years. It’s my hope that my long local and federal experience creating and working with health care systems can be of use to the critical debate ahead.”

“Our Party needs to attract and develop new leaders. That will happen when those of us who have had the mantel of leadership create opportunities for them to advance.”

“I’m happy to do that today.”
