Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger released a new report aiming to strengthen the protection of government agencies and the American private sector against increasingly aggressive cyber attacks. "We all agree the digital threat is one of the most dangerous and prolific of modern times and I think it needs to be made a higher priority,” he said.
I couldn’t be prouder to accept this award on behalf of all American communities who are trying to do the right thing by investing in infrastructure, creating jobs, and spending tax dollars as efficiently as possible. These are the types of meat-and-potato issues that have a direct impact on communities and taxpayers across the country and Congressman Hultgren and I both believe they are too important to get caught up in party politics.
Congressman Ruppersberger was selected for his family-focused approach. He encourages professional development, has offered flexible schedules to employees who want to pursue degrees and serve the military, and provides paid sick and maternity benefits. Four of the Congressman’s 15 staffers have been with him since he was first elected to Congress in 2003. “You are only as good as your team,” Congressman Ruppersberger said.
