ALBANY, GA – Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) released a statement regarding Independence Day.
"For many of us, the fourth of July is a day filled with family and community. Food cooked on the grill; spending time with loved ones, friends, and neighbors; fireworks once the sun goes down. It is a time to reflect upon our great nation and take pride in how far we, as a society, have come since our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence.”
“While we celebrate our nation’s birth, please keep in mind the multitude of freedoms with which we are blessed as well as the many men and women who have served in order to ensure our Rights’ longevity. I would like to send a hearty greeting to our brave service members and their families this 4th of July. Whether you are home or abroad, please have a fulfilling and restful Independence Day, and on behalf of nearly 700,000 constituents, thank you for your service.”
