Coverage of 2011 Congressional Leadership Breakfast with John Larson
Congressional Leadership Breakfast 2011
Congressman John Larson, Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus
On the morning of Wednesday, December 7, 2011, Congressman John Larson (CT-1), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, joined 50 members of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society Leadership Council, Constantino Brumidi Society and staff for the Society’s annual Congressional Leadership Breakfast. The Congressman spoke for an hour on the importance of cooperation in the Congress. What he stressed, above all else, is dialogue. It is essential, he stated, that Members from both sides of the aisle be able to speak, to argue, to agree, to disagree respectfully.
The Breakfast provides a forum for a member of the House or the Senate leadership to address Society members on a topic of their own personal choice. This year’s event, generously supported by Altria and Caterpillar, was held in the Rotunda Room of Altria Client Services.
