Statement from the President on the Retirement of Congressman Jim Matheson

Jim Matheson has proudly represented the people of Utah for more than twelve years in the United States Congress.  He has been a forceful advocate of our nation’s veterans and worked to strengthen our economy through his support of key trade agreements.  Michelle and I thank Congressman Matheson for his service and wish him, his wife Amy, and their two sons the very best in the future.
