Republican Brian Mast will be sworn in today as part of the 115th Congress. He’ll represent Palm Beach-Treasure Coast District 18 in the House.

In the eight weeks since he won an expensive, nationally watched race for a Palm Beach-Treasure Coast congressional district, Republican Brian Mast has received plenty of congratulations — and challenges — from the people he will begin representing today.

 

“This is the response I get from people constantly: It’s first people being very cordial, saying ‘Hey, I voted for you, really proud of you, glad that you won,’ ” Mast said Monday on the eve of being sworn in as a freshman member of the 115th Congress.

 

“Then people’s faces go serious and they say, ‘Now go get to work. Now don’t let us down. Now go drain the swamp’ – something to that effect,” said Mast, 36, a decorated Army combat veteran who lives in Palm City. “And I think that’s the way that people should be. It’s nice that they’re congratulating me, but you know beyond that they’re expecting results.”
