Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta)  released the following statement before President Donald Trump visits the Mahoning Valley this evening:

"I would have loved to have traveled back to the Mahoning Valley tonight to be with President Trump, and I'm honored I was invited to attend. However, we are in session and voting this afternoon and tonight on important legislation regarding sanctions on Iran, North Korea, and Russia, among other items. The people elected me to be their representative to Congress, so I feel it is my duty to stay in Washington to go on the record and cast votes on their behalf. I'm glad that before the President speaks at the Covelli Center, he is holding an event with many of our local veteran heroes to discuss some of what his young administration has done to begin reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs, and talk about some of the critical work that still remains. During his campaign, President Trump made a commitment to our veterans, and I know he takes his role as Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces very seriously."
