Swalwells welcome baby daughter, Kathryn

Nicknamed 'Cricket,' couple's second child born Oct. 24 in D.C.

Pleasanton's U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) and wife Brittany celebrated the birth of their second child last month, a baby girl named Kathryn.

"Meet Kathryn Watts Swalwell -- we'll call her 'Cricket.' Mama and baby are doing great. And I'm thrilled that for the first time as long as anyone can remember in my family, a male had a girl. #YearOfTheWoman," the congressman said on social media after his daughter's birth.

The baby girl -- whose formal name is Kathryn Watts Swalwell and is nicknamed "Cricket" -- was born on Oct. 24 in Washington, D.C., two weeks before voters re-elected her father to a fourth term in Congress.

Named in honor of Brittany's mother, Kathryn Swalwell weighed in at seven pounds and 13 ounces and was 20.5 inches tall at birth. She is a year and a half younger than her brother Nelson.

A 38-year-old Dublin native, Congressman Swalwell represents the 15th District, which includes Pleasanton, San Ramon, Dublin, Livermore, Union City, parts of Fremont, and the unincorporated areas of Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Sunol, Ashland, Cherryland and Fairview.

Gee. Lots of bitter posts here from the 29% who didn’t vote for Swalwell.

Congratulations, Eric and Brittany Swalwell on your new baby girl!

Doug,
I don’t vote for people that grandstand on emotional causes and fail to bring meaningful, tangible change to the people they’re supposed to represent.

You’re more than welcome to support candidates that rely on Twitter posts and pursue policies meant to target individuals (not political office/positions), and engage in internet arguments.....interesting how his approach parallels that of the individual he wants to build his career pursuing out of office

I find it hilarious that members of a party that elected a guy who speaks at the level of a 4th grader and has the attention span of a small chipmunk are calling other people "dumb" or saying that the actions of other people are "cringeworthy".

and what percent did he win THIS time? More than a few vocal regular users here are way out of touch and very much in the minority. But they do make a quite a bit of noise........<sigh>

Thats right, diversity of opinion has no place, the majority always knows best. Why do we even have to entertain alternate thought?

PP: Alternate of thought? Or loud negative whining? AT least on THIS forum.

And, really, speaking of elections (since you missed that) the majority does rule; no exceptions EXCEPT for the electoral college. But, again, we weren't referring to a Presidential election(s), now was I? At least not yet we aren't.....

Do keep up.
