  • Reid Remarks In Remembrance of Special Agent John Gibson And Officer Jacob Chestnut

    There are people here who are assigned to do everything they can to keep this magnificent Capitol safe. In 1998, two of those dedicated police officers gave their lives while protecting the Capitol. They were Special Agent John Gibson and Officer Jacob Chestnut. I know nothing can make up for the loss of a cherished loved one, but I hope their families and friends take some comfort knowing that those of us who were here that day hold them in our memories and in our hearts.

A fair shot is the idea that each hard-working American deserves an opportunity to achieve a measure of prosperity. But it all begins with jobs.
