    HIGGINS of new york in the house of representatives Wednesday, January 23, 2013 Mr. HIGGINS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the career and accomplishments of a distinguished member of my Western New York community, Richard Edwards, Sr.

    Richard has been a lifelong resident of Amherst, New York, where he has served for over 50 years as a dedicated and valued member of Main- Transit Fire Department. During his years at Main-Transit, Richard served as the Fire Police Lieutenant and Fire Police Captain.

    Richard and his colleagues are American heroes. Every day they courageously place themselves in harm's way to protect the lives and properties of others. Their sacrifices are invaluable to our community and I thank him for his half-century of service.

    Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I rise today to honor Richard Edwards, Sr. on his exemplary career.
