Statement by President Obama on Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey’s Retirement

June 28, 2011

“A fierce advocate for children, families and the people of the North Bay, Lynn Woolsey has never forgotten the people who sent her to Congress for nearly two decades.  She is a leader on progressive causes and a fighter for working families, and we will miss her passionate voice in Congress.  Michelle and I wish her well and join the people of California in thanking her for her many years of service.”
