Congresswoman Foxx offered the following statement to WGHP Fox 8 on the coming retirement of 6th District Congressman Howard Coble:
"Howard Coble is a dedicated public servant to the people of North Carolina and a champion for honest, effective government. For nearly three decades he has taken great care to represent well the values and concerns of 6th District residents, and push Washington to work better on their behalf. His friendship and leadership in our state delegation will be dearly missed in coming years, but his legacy of service and devotion to our home and to all North Carolinians will continue to be a standard for current and future leaders to follow. It has been a personal joy for me to work alongside Howard in the Congress."
