(KGET) — David Valadao was sworn into office Tuesday as the congressman representing California’s 21st Congressional District.

“It is an honor to serve the constituents of California’s 21st Congressional District,” Valadao said in a news release. “The Central Valley has always been my home, and the needs of the people who live there are my number one priority. I am returning to Washington with clear objectives: get people back to work, fix our broken immigration system, deliver more water to the Central Valley, and cut red tape to make it easier for farmers to feed America.”

In November, Valadao defeated incumbent T.J. Cox. Valadao previously represented the 21st District for three terms.
