[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1840] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] TRIBUTE TO CHRISTINE DAVENPORT _____ HON. CANDICE S. MILLER of michigan in the house of representatives Wednesday, December 11, 2013 Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of myself and Mr. Brady of Pennsylvania, our Ranking Minority Member, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Christine Davenport who is leaving the House at the end of this year after serving in the Office of the General Counsel for more than ten years, first as an Assistant Counsel and then as a Senior Assistant Counsel. We will miss her. Ms. Davenport provided frequent and invaluable legal advice and representation to the Committee on House Administration, as well as to Members, officers and other committees of the House more generally. Our staff came to rely on her expertise and guidance, particularly in connection with their internal oversight activities. Over the years, Ms. Davenport played a significant role in safeguarding the legal and institutional interests of the House of Representatives. Ms. Davenport served the House with great distinction. On behalf of the Committee on House Administration, we thank Ms. Davenport for her devoted service, and extend to her our very best wishes for her continued success. ____________________
