U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) was sworn in to the 117th Congress on Sunday, Jan. 3, by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Schiff began his 11th term, serving California’s 28th Congressional District, which stretches from Pasadena to West Hollywood and includes Hollywood, the Hollywood Hills and Griffith Park. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, members assembled in small groups and remained physically-distanced for swearing-in ceremonies on the House Floor.
“The past four years have been unlike any other in my career or my lifetime, and I think many of my fellow Americans feel the same way. President-elect Joe Biden will soon be sworn in, which gives us a chance to turn the page on this painful chapter in our nation’s history and try to restore calm, decency and normalcy to our politics and our country. We have to,” Schiff said. “Our country is facing four immediate crises, all of which must be addressed urgently: a crisis in health, in the economy, with our climate and with inequality and injustice. All of these challenges require urgent action and big, systemic change. None of this will be easy, but we must persevere.”
