Linda McCray worked for 35 days without pay during the Trump Shutdown, keeping passengers safe and planes on time at the Washington Air Traffic Control Center. Congresswoman Wexton invited Ms. McCray to be her guest at the State of the Union, as the prospect of a second shutdown looms.

Rep. Wexton was one of many Democratic Congresspeople who brought federal workers as their guests to send a message to the President that shutting down the government is not a rational political solution to our policy problems. Commenting on the decision to invite Ms. McCray, Wexton said, "If the President is going to shut down the government again, he's going to have to tell federal workers to their face."
