    MALONEY of new york in the house of representatives Wednesday, January 7, 2015 Mrs. CAROLYN B. MALONEY of New York. Mr. Speaker, regrettably, I was unable to attend the opening session of the 114th Congress yesterday, January 6, as I joined many of my colleagues and friends to memorialize the life of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo.



    Had I been present at the opening session, I would have voted for my friend and colleague from California, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, to serve as Speaker of the House.

    As the Speaker in the 110th and 111th Congresses, and the first woman to hold this position, Rep. Pelosi accumulated an unparalleled record of accomplishments to support the middle class and hardworking American families, and I would have been proud to support her election to a third term as Speaker.
