U.S. Representative Patrick E. Murphy, who spoke at Renewal Coalition in September on the import issue of veteran suicide prevention and assisting our veterans, has now announced he will donate the pay he receives during the government shutdown to Renewal Coalition.
Congressman Murphy stated, “The residents of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, like the rest of Americans, expect Congress to do its job of funding the government responsibly. If our leaders cannot work together to come to a reasonable solution to keep our government operating it will threaten our economic growth and suspend key services to our seniors and our nation’s heroes. In that situation, Members of Congress should not receive pay while our brave service members and their families suffer. I will be standing with them if a shutdown occurs and will donate my pay to help Renewal Coalition continue to serve those who have served our nation.”
Thank you for standing with your nation’s heroes!!
