Since being sworn into office on January 3, 2019, Congressmember Mike Levin has been making a difference for our communities and our families.
Mike believes that spending as much time as possible in communities and neighborhoods across the district gives him the opportunity to hear directly from his constituents, so he can better represent them in Washington.
Over the past twelve months, Mike has:
- Co-sponsored over 233 bills, resolutions, or amendments, over 131 of which are bipartisan.
- Introduced 32 bills, resolutions, or amendments, 17 of which have passed in the House.
- Held a Town Hall every month, and he has pledged to continue to hold a monthly Town Hall for as long as he serves in office.
- Held 25 constituent coffees in the community and for constituents visiting Washington, DC.
- Held 12 House Parties, bringing the total number to over 210 in neighborhoods across the district since announcing his candidacy in 2017.
