Newly elected Congressman Denver Riggleman posted on Social Media that he will not be cashing his paychecks during the Federal Government shutdown.
Riggleman said he will be donating his paychecks to Drakes Branch Volunteer Fire Department in Charlotte County.
That southside community was hit hard by flash flooding from Hurricane Michael in October.
During the #GovernmentShutdown I will not take a paycheck. Instead, I will donate my check to Drakes Branch Volunteer Fire Department in Charlotte Co. They were recently devastated by Hurricane Michael. Their community came together after an awful tragedy. We can learn from them.— Congressman Denver Riggleman (@RepRiggleman) January 7, 2019
