As a dad, Derek is working to ensure that we fully confront our nation’s challenges so the next generation has a bright future. That’s why he’s pushing Congress to come together and deliver real bipartisan results that support the middle-class. Derek believes that Congress needs to focus less on partisan bickering and focus more on progress.
That is why he serves as co-chair of the Bipartisan Working Group, a coalition of Democrats and Republicans committed to putting aside partisan bickering and focusing, instead, on making progress for the country. For his efforts, Derek received the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Legislative Action Award which recognizes “members with the unique capacity to identify common interests and get things done.”
Derek also serves as the Chair of the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress, a new committee focused on reforms to make Congress work better for the American people.
