    SEWELL of Alabama. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to join my Alabama colleagues in welcoming newly elected Representative Bradley Byrne to the 113th Congress.

    As a lawyer, as a former Alabama State Senator, and as a former chancellor of Alabama's 2-year college system, Bradley has a proven record as a principled servant leader.

    I know Bradley as a man of strong character, who has dedicated his public life to strengthening his community and improving our State. I believe Bradley will ably follow in the tradition of his predecessors Sonny Callahan and Jo Bonner in proudly representing Alabama's First Congressional District.

    I look forward to working with you, Bradley, especially on our shared constituents in Clarke County.

    Recently, a local reporter asked the delegation to give Bradley some advice.

    The best advice that I could give you as you embark upon this special journey is to always put your constituents first. The oath you took today is a very sacred one. You join a body that has an awesome responsibility, and that responsibility is neither Republican nor Democrat. The issues that we talk about are for all Americans. I look forward to working with you, and I know that given your record of hard work and your willingness to work across the aisle that you will be an amazing addition to the Alabama delegation, and I welcome you.
