Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-Calif.) bid farewell to the 38th District of California and was sworn into the 113th Congress Thursday afternoon in Washington, D.C.
Napoliatano is currently serving her eighth term in the new 32nd District, representing cities of the east San Gabriel Valley, including Azusa, Baldwin Park, City of Industry, Covina, Duarte, El Monte, Irwindale, La Puente, La Verne, Monrovia, San Dimas, and West Covina, as well as the unincorporated communities of Avocado Heights, Basset, and Valinda.
Napolitano had served in the 38th District since being elected to Congress in 1998.
She was elected to the newly redrawn 32nd District over Republican candidate David Miller in November.
“Thank you to a very hardworking community for 14 years of continued support, full partnerships, and great public service.” Napolitano said in a statement. “My staff and I look forward to serving the people of the 32nd District as well as continuing to work with Congresswoman Linda T. Sanchez, the new representative of the 38th District, on issues that are mutually beneficial. They are in good hands.”
