Rep. Delahunt assumed the chairmanship of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe following the resignation of the subcommittee’s former chairman, U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler (D-19-FL), from Congress.
“We thank Congressman Delahunt for joining the Hellenic Caucus,” said President of A.H.E.P.A.Nicholas A. Karacostas. “It is especially important because of his chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Europe. We welcome Congressman Delahunt, and we look forward to working with him on issues of importance to the Greek American community.”
With Rep. Delahunt’s membership the Hellenic Caucus now has 148 members, which is a record number for the Caucus.
“We also applaud the efforts of the Cape Cod AHEPA family, led by District 8 Lt. Governor John Tanionos, who successfully outreached to Congressman Delahunt on this initiative,” said Karacostas. “We urge the community to reach out to their members of Congress and ask them to join the Hellenic Caucus. By doing so, we help to further strengthen the U.S.-Greece relationship.”
The congressman represents the 10th Congressional District of Massachusetts and began his public service in Congress in 1997. His district includes Cape Cod, Nantucket, and the Islands of Martha’s Vineyard. Rep. Delahunt also serves on the House Judiciary Committee.
