In brief interviews, he spoke of the enormous sense of responsibility he faces, and the work ahead. He listed among his top priorities rebuilding U.S. public works and overhauling the tax code.

Gottheimer will maintain a congressional office in Washington and in Bergen County. It was not immediately known if Gottheimer would also open an office in Sussex County or what will become of Garrett's Newton office on Spring Street.
