Washington, D.C. - Today, Congresswoman Cindy Axne (IA-03) was sworn-in to serve as the U.S. Representative from Iowa’s Third Congressional District in the 116th Congress. Congresswoman Axne's husband John, her two sons Gunnar and Rafe, and her father Terry Wadle joined as guests in the House gallery to watch the oath of office.  

“I am incredibly honored to serve as the U.S. Representative from Iowa’s Third Congressional District. I will work tirelessly to deliver the highest level of constituent services and ensure the voices of all Iowans are heard in Washington.  

"With the start of the 116th Congress, we have an opportunity, and a duty to our constituents, to put party aside and work together to move our country forward. I remain committed to serving as a champion of bipartisan, commonsense solutions to improve the lives of all Iowans. 

“Over the next two years, I will fight to strengthen our rural communities, support our farmers, and provide all Iowans with the skills they need to get a good paying job. I will work relentlessly to ensure we maintain protections for people with pre-existing conditions, protect crucial programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, and lower the cost of health care for all Iowans.

“While I look forward to passing crucial legislation to help hardworking Iowa families, my first order of business will be to re-open the government and ensure that every single federal employee receives the paycheck they’ve earned.”
