Shamus Offers to Cover Half of Hunter's Shutdown Salary


February 8, 2018

San Diego – February 8 – Republican Candidate for Congress in California’s 50th Congressional District, Shamus Sayed, announced that he would be offering to cover half of Rep. Hunter’s wage earned during the recent government shutdown. Members of Congress, including Hunter, continue to receive their full salary and benefits during a government shutdown, while members of our military and other hard-working Americans go unpaid for their work.


Shamus said, “It’s unfair that San Diego’s taxpayers are forced to cover the salaries of unaccountable Washington bureaucrats, when they are not doing the job they were elected to do. I’m running to represent the 50th Congressional District because I believe my friends and neighbors deserve better than the status quo they have in Washington.”


“That’s why I’m offering to cover half of Congressman Hunter’s government shutdown salary myself, so our local families and business owners don’t have to,” Shamus continued. “If our military isn’t getting paid during a government shutdown, neither should our representatives in Congress.”
