WASHINGTON — Congressman Neal Dunn took oath at the Capitol Tuesday, kicking off a two-year term in the 115th U.S. Congress.

“I am humbled and honored to be able to serve the hardworking people of Florida’s 2nd Congressional District and represent their conservative values in Congress. I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running and getting some real work done,” said Dunn.

The Panama City Republican followed through with a promise to hang his Revolutionary War musket surrendered to General George Washington at the Battle of Yorktown in 1781 in his Washington office after he was sworn in.

“This musket will be a steadfast reminder of the reason I’m here in Congress: to defend the Constitution and honor those who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom. We must never forget how important our Constitutional rights are,” said Dunn. “It’s not going to be easy, but we will fix our broken health care system, strengthen our military and the economy, provide for our veterans, and protect the Second Amendment.”

Dunn is a urologic surgeon, banker and philanthropist based in Bay County, where he resides with his wife, Leah Dunn. They have three sons and three grandsons.
