Congresswoman Kat Cammack sworn into 117th Congress

Posted

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Kat Cammack was sworn in to the 117th Congress last Sunday by the House Speaker as the U.S. Representative from Florida's Third Congressional District.

Cammack now is the youngest Republican woman serving in the 117th Congress, representing the northern Florida district that includes Alachua, Bradford, Clay, Putnam and Union Counties, as well as part of Marion County and the cities of Gainesville and Palatka.

She replaced Ted Yoho, who decided not to seek relection.

"It is an honor to serve the constituents of Florida's Third District as their voice in our Nation’s Capitol. The voters of the district have entrusted me with the serious responsibility of representing their values and beliefs in the 'People's House,'" said Cammack. "The American people have great expectations for the 117th Congress and I am excited to pursue an aggressive and meaningful legislative agenda with my team. Our first promise was to hit the ground running and I am proud that on our first day, we have kept that promise by having our offices operational on day one."

Cammack's Washington, D.C. office is located at 1626 Longworth House Office Building, and her staff looks forward to hosting constituent visitors as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted later this year. Cammack enters Congress with her D.C. and District offices fully operational and ready to work.

To stay up to date with all of Congresswoman Cammack's activities, she said to like the official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

Cammack is a third-generation sandblaster who grew up on a cattle ranch. She understands the hard work and determination it takes to run a small business, navigating labor challenges and interpreting regulation. A proud alumnus of the Naval War College, Kat knows the issues and constituents of Florida’s 3rd intimately, having served as the longtime former deputy chief of staff to Yoho for the district prior to her election in 2020.

Kat is a proud wife to her husband Matt, a Gainesville native, who serves with the Gainesville Fire Department as a firefighter/paramedic and SWAT medic. Together, they started the “Grit Foundation,” a non-profit organization whose mission is to support local first responders, law enforcement and veterans. One of her donations included K-9 Grit to the Green Cove Springs Police Department.
