Rep. Mark Takano Applauds President Obama’s Final State of the Union

Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA) released the following statement after President Obama’s State of the Union address. 

“Tonight, the president reminded Americans of the progress this country has made over the past seven years and delivered a vision for a future grounded in hope and ambition, instead of fear and isolation. 

“He reminded us that the source of America's strength is the freedom, opportunity, and dignity we reserve for every American. And most of all, he reminded us that we cannot allow our politics to stop of us from doing what we know is right for the American people.

"I applaud the president for appealing to the values we all share, and I certainly agree that seven years into his presidency, the state of our union is strong.
