James Oberstar

?As a Congressman I shall continue to build on the programs of social and economic progress to which I have already contributed.

The legislative programs I shall propose and will pursue will be aimed at strengthening the people power of the 8th Congressional District, whether it?s in economic development, housing, manpower, education, environment, or in programs for the young, the elderly, the gifted, and the afflicted.

With the experience I have gained in the past eleven years in Washington, I shall will work, with all of my strength, to fulfill these goals for the people of the 8th District.?
