At Selma Open House, Congressman TJ Cox Talks Water, Trade Wars And August Recess

Aug 9, 2019

Over the last 200 days of legislative session, freshman Congressman TJ Cox has brought the House Committee on Natural Resources Chair Raul Grijalva to the San Joaquin Valley for a water tour, co-sponsored Valley Fever legislation, and thrown his support behind a number of Democratic party agenda items. Last weekend, he held an open house at a new district office in Selma. 

 

That’s where we caught up with Congressman Cox to learn more about his efforts in Washington, D.C., and ask his thoughts looking to 2020. Former congressman David Valadao announced last month that he hopes to reclaim the seat. 

 

Listen to the interview above to hear Cox discuss water, the trade war, and how the August break from the legislative session isn’t as much of a “recess” as it seems.
