Bucks County Representative Brian Fitzpatrick was honored, this week, by the United States Chamber of Commerce for leadership and bipartisanship with two awards – the Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award and the Jefferson-Hamilton Award for Bipartisanship.
The awards are given to members of Congress who demonstrate bipartisan leadership and constructive governing.
The congressman said he believes every issue discussed in Congress has the ability to be bipartisan. “I will continue to work with my colleagues across the political spectrum to make America healthier and safer and to deliver results.
“The American people deserve commonsense solutions to kitchen table issues, and that is what bipartisanship gets you,” Fitzpatrick said.
Last year, the U.S. Chamber pledged to heighten its focus and reward bipartisan leadership by honoring members of Congress who are forging common-sense solutions and working across the aisle to enact meaningful reforms. Members are ranked relative to the performance of all other members of their party.
Fitzpatrick, a Republican, last week defeated a challenger to win the Republican primary and will face Democrat Christina Finello in November.
