WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after Congressman John Olver announced that he is retiring at the end of this Congress:

“I’m sad to learn that the House of Representatives will be losing a dedicated public servant at the end of this Congress. John Olver has been a tireless fighter for the people of Western Massachusetts since he was first elected to the House in 1991. Having served with him on the Appropriations Committee, I know he has always put the interests of his constituents first and has consistently fought for the most disadvantaged among us. I join in wishing him and his wife, Rose, well in whatever lies ahead.”
