Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement announcing that Congresswoman Susan Wild of Pennsylvania will serve as Chair of the House Ethics Committee. Congresswoman Wild will serve in an acting capacity until her appointment is approved by the full Democratic Caucus:
“As Speaker, it is my privilege to appoint Congresswoman Susan Wild to serve as Chair of the House Ethics Committee. As she takes her place at the helm of this vital instrument of good government, Congresswoman Wild brings a respected reputation for bipartisanship, a passionate belief in the high ethical standards of elected office and an unwavering devotion to upholding the public interest over all else. The daughter of a journalist and an Air Force officer, Congresswoman Wild’s devotion to public service is in her DNA – and she will wield her gavel with the profound humility and reverence that it demands.
“Since day one, our House Democratic Majority has been a force For The People. Congresswoman Wild will be a vital partner in our continued work to honor both the sanctity of the institution we serve and the trust placed in us by our constituents.
“House Democrats are deeply grateful for the strong leadership of outgoing Chairman Ted Deutch, who served in this post with distinction. We wish him, his wife Jill and their three children best wishes as they prepare to begin a new chapter.”
