Davis Still Working

Representative Jo Ann Davis is working from her Gloucester County home while she takes chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer.

Davis' chief of staff Chris Connelly says the First District Republican voted in the House four out of 16 days that votes were cast in June.

Since January, she has been present and voted on 22 percent of the more than 600 roll-call votes. Those include votes on such issues as stem-cell research, the fiscal 2008 budget resolution, federal prescription-drug policy and increasing the minimum wage.

Davis announced in March that she was battling breast cancer again. She first was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2005 and underwent chemotherapy treatments and a mastectomy.

Davis is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and monitors hearings from home. Her staff takes care of the day-to-day operation of her office.

The 57-year-old was elected in 2000. Connelly says she intends to run for re-election next year.
