We wanted to share with you the recent news that our House LIHTC champion Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) will be leaving Congress sometime before January 31, 2018, to lead the Ohio Business Roundtable and to spend more time at home in Ohio with his family.
Rep. Tiberi has been a strong and effective leader in Congress and a tireless advocate for affordable housing and the LIHTC. Through his superb leadership, sage advice, and keen political know-how, we have made remarkable progress in our effort to retain and improve the LIHTC. Rep. Tiberi will be greatly missed by the industry, but we wish him the best of luck as he takes on this new challenge. In the meantime, we look forward to continuing our work with him on the LIHTC as the tax reform process continues this year, and we will be seeking his guidance on next steps.
Statement by Congressman Pat Tiberi
It has been the most remarkable honor of my life to serve the people of the 12th District.
Washington, October 19, 2017
Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) released the following statement:
“It has been the most remarkable honor of my life to serve the people of the 12th District. As the son of Italian immigrants, I am forever grateful for the opportunity my parents gave me by coming to America and raising our family in Ohio. It was because of their pursuit of the American Dream that made it possible for me to serve 17 years in the halls of Congress representing my home. This truly is the greatest country in the world.
“Today, it is with a humble and thankful heart that I announce I will not be seeking reelection. While I have not yet determined a final resignation date, I will be leaving Congress by January 31, 2018. I have been presented with an opportunity to lead the Ohio Business Roundtable that will allow me to continue to work on public policy issues impacting Ohioans while also spending more time with my family. Leaving Congress is not a decision I take lightly but after a lot of consideration, it is the best one for me, my wife, Denice, and our four wonderful daughters.
“Over the years, I’ve met and worked with so many amazing people, including constituents from all walks of life and my colleagues from across the country. I’ve also had the best staff behind me throughout my entire career. We have helped thousands of constituents with problems they have had with the federal government and fought for solutions to improve the lives of Americans everywhere. I am proud of my team’s work and everything that we have accomplished together.
“In Congress, nothing is possible without the support of the people we represent. To the people of Ohio’s 12th District, I will always be appreciative of the years you’ve allowed me to serve. Thank you.”
