photo, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-LehtinenWelcome to the Online Office of Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. This site is dedicated to the residents of Florida's 18th Congressional district.

I want to take this opportunity to let you know that it is a great honor for me to represent the residents of this wonderful district. Constituent service has always been one of my top priorities and that is why I invite you to use this site as another tool for communicating with me.

I have had the privilege of representing you in Washington and during this time I have fought for passage of legislation and support of issues that are important to the residents of South Florida. Improving the quality of education, protecting Social Security and Medicare, providing adequate health care, addressing issues affecting seniors, fighting for lower and fairer taxes, defending human rights, supporting legislation to benefit women's health, and preserving the environment continue to be priorities for me. I continue to work hard to bring visibility to these issues at the national level.   Read the rest of my Welcome Message
