The Week of

Hello. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website for the 1st Congressional District of North Carolina. It is my distinct pleasure to represent the citizens of the 1st Congressional District. Our work in this office is intended to make a difference to the 660,000 people in the 23 counties of the district. I encourage you to write, fax, email, or call my office with your views on issues of importance to you and your family. I am working very hard to insure that Social Security and Medicare are preserved for future generations, to improve education and to spur economic growth.

As a member of the Armed Services Committee, I support a strong national defense. It is vitally important that our military services have the resources they need to keep America free.

As a member of the Agriculture Committee, I support our rural farmers in every respect and will work very hard to oppose reopening of the Farm Bill in this session of Congress. The tobacco buy-out has been reached and it is important that the payments begin.

Again, it is an honor to serve in the United States House of Representatives as the representative for Northeastern North Carolina. Welcome to my website!

Very truly yours,
G. K. Butterfield
G. K. Butterfield
Member of Congress
