Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement on Michelle Obama’s final address as First Lady.

“I want to thank Michelle Obama for her tremendous service to our country over the last 8 years. Her work on behalf of our children has been especially inspiring, whether it be her commitment to reforming our education system or her Lets Move initiative which has helped inspire millions of America families to exercise more and eat healthier. Through her work and as a role model for young people, the First Lady has fulfilled her mission to allow ‘our young people to know that they matter, that they belong.’ I am also grateful for her efforts on behalf of military families, who sacrifice so much for our country.

“Michelle Obama has represented the best of American values during her time in the White House and I look forward to her continued contributions to our country as a private citizen.”
