Senator Lamar Alexander delivers “Salute to Staff,” Suggests New Senate Tradition

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today, Thursday, December 3rd, 2020, said on the Senate floor that a “Salute to the Staff” speech should be a new Senate tradition, while praising the work of his “superior” staff over the 18 years of his Senate service. 

“We have some important traditions here in the Senate – including the maiden speech, which I made 17 years ago, and the farewell speech which I delivered yesterday, but for me, something is missing. So I’m here today to make a ‘Salute to the Staff’ speech. And I know that my colleagues agree that their own accomplishments are the result of working with a superior staff so perhaps a ‘Salute to the Staff’ speech might become a new Senate tradition,” Senator Alexander said.
