TechNet Statement on Retirement of Rep. Dave Reichert
Washington, D.C. — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today responded to Rep. Dave Reichert’s (R-WA) announcement that he will retire at the end of the 115th Congress. The following statement can be attributed to Linda Moore, President and CEO of TechNet:
"For over a decade, Sheriff Reichert has brought an invaluable perspective to the halls of Congress. When he retires at the end of 2018, Congress will miss his leadership and his deep understanding of a wide range of issues.
"Sheriff Reichert is an accomplished law enforcement professional who has demonstrated economic sense, courage, and the compassion to tackle the difficult issue of immigration. When he works on trade issues, he brings a keen understanding of the economic benefits of opening markets for both the innovators he represents in one of the world's premier innovation hubs, as well as his district's farmers.
"As he serves out the rest of his term, we look forward to working with him on finishing strong and further adding to his legacy by achieving tax reform, trade modernization, and providing permanent relief to Dreamers."
