Congressman McNerney sworn in

Democrat Jerry McNerney was sworn into office in Washington, D.C., last week to represent the 11th Congressional District. McNerney said he will use his position on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to help address much needed transportation projects and improvements in the district. On Wednesday, McNerney secured a seat on the House Committee on Science and Technology.

He also plans to focus on reforming ethics rules in Washington; changing the way the country's energy policy is shaped, in part through a focus on renewable energy; as well as helping to find a new way forward in Iraq.

McNerney defeated incumbent Richard Pombo of Tracy in the November election, one of many GOP upsets across the nation.
