Congressman Jim Himes

2018 U.S. Congressional Races

Third Congressional District Representative Jim Himes

"I was lucky enough to grow up attending well-funded schools with dedicated, caring teachers. The difference that head start made in my life has been immeasurable. But children's destinies must not be determined by their ZIP codes. I will continue to fight for full funding for educational programs at every level and for every child and to support teachers who are too often overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated."

Hear What Some Teachers Are Saying

"Jim Himes has proven himself a friend of Connecticut public education time and time again. He recognizes the importance of what teachers do, and he can be counted on to keep the interests of students and teachers at the forefront when education issues arise in Washington. He is also a regular presence in Connecticut schools, making time to visit and answer questions about his work and encouraging students to prepare themselves for careers in public service."
