Memorandum RE: Jake Auchincloss’ Third Year in Congress

Memorandum RE: Jake Auchincloss’ Third Year in Congress

To: Interested Parties

From: Matt Corridoni  

Date: December 28, 2023 

This year has proved to be turbulent with Republicans taking over the majority and their constant infighting derailing even basic governance. Despite the political theater and GOP-manufactured dysfunction, Congressman Auchincloss was able to achieve results: working to take on special interests to lower healthcare costs; working with the Biden administration to curb gun violence despite Republican control of Congress; establishing an influential voice on U.S. foreign policy regarding China, Ukraine, and Israel; and continuing to deliver top-notch constituent services.       

Legislative Victories and Representing Values

  • Rep. Auchincloss was appointed to the Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party. In this committee he has fought for increased investment in science and education and an emphasis on sustaining U.S. leadership for the rules-based, international order instead of turning towards protectionism and isolationism. 

  • Unanimously passed legislation, the U.S. Supply Chain Security Review Act, through the House to assess the potential economic security and supply chain risks of foreign ownership of marine terminals at major U.S. ports. 

  • Led a letter with 67 House Members urging the inclusion of funding for safe firearm storage education in the Labor, Health and Human Services and Related Agencies Appropriations bill.

  • Worked to lower health care costs and cut out greedy drug-pricing middlemen by co-leading or cosponsoring the following bills: the Drug Price Transparency in Medicaid Act, the Protect Patients Against PBM Abuses Act and the Help Ensure Lower Patient (HELP) Copays Act.


Delivering Results at Home 


  • Visited all 35 cities and towns in the district

  • Visited 47 businesses and nonprofit organizations in person across the district

  • Held 32 in-person or virtual town halls to share legislative updates and hear what’s on constituents’ minds. 

  • Hosted 13 youth-focused events to engage with young people across the district on topics ranging from climate change, mental health/social media, anti-Semitism, career readiness, and more.

  • Engaged 100+ students across the district via the Congressional App Challenge, Congressional Art Competition, and Military Academy nomination process.



  • 1975 casework inquiries completed

  • Casework completed for constituents in every city and town in the district

  • $285,569 of tax refunds returned

  • 740 emergency passports secured

  • Assisted 128 constituents with obtaining Social Security benefits

  • Assisted 339 constituents with navigating the US immigration system


Effectively Communicating and Making a Name for Himself in the Next Generation of Democratic Leaders 


As we head into another year of Republican control, Congressman Auchincloss will continue to secure local wins despite being in the minority; stand up for Democratic values; and lay the groundwork for legislation that can be adopted when Democrats reclaim the gavel.
