Dublin native Eric Swalwell is a congressman.
Swalwell, 31, was sworn in Thursday as part of the 113th Congress.
The former Alameda County prosecutor did a plethora of interviews on his initial day, including a live segment with politico.com. In it, Swalwell talked about how he plans to work with both Democrats and Republicans. He also discussed how he plans to co-author an assault weapons ban bill that will be introduced this month.
Swalwell also cast his first vote today. It was in a losing cause. He voted in favor of Democrat Nancy Pelosi being elected as Speaker of the House. Republican John Boehner retained that post.
Patch will be speaking with Swalwell about his first day and will have a more in-depth report.
