Rep. Meadows resigns from Congress
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-Asheville, formally resigned from the House of Representatives on Monday, previously serving North Carolina’s 11th District. Effective immediately, Meadows will begin serving full time as President Trump’s White House Chief of Staff, as previously reported.
“Working for the people of Western North Carolina has been the honor of my life. There is a season for everything — and while I’ll be serving in a different capacity, the mountains of western NC will always be home. I’ll be forever grateful to the people there for placing their trust in me 8 years ago to be their voice in Congress,” Meadows said in a press release. “Now begins a new chapter. I’m honored, humbled, and excited to begin working alongside President Trump’s team in the White House on behalf of the American people. While our country is in a moment of tremendous adversity with the
coronavirus pandemic, make no mistake: as Americans always do, we will rise to the challenge, and we will win. With President Trump at the helm, our country will emerge from this trial better than ever before. I look forward to playing a small part in that story. Let’s get to work.”
