Frank Horton Career

Horton was a member of the Rochester City Council from 1955 to 1961. Elected to the House of Representatives in 1962 as a Republican, Horton was re-elected to 14 additional terms.

In 1966, along with three Republican Senators and four other Republican Representatives, Horton signed a telegram sent to Georgia Governor Carl E. Sanders regarding the Georgia legislature's refusal to seat the recently elected Julian Bond in their state House of Representatives. This refusal, said the telegram, was "a dangerous attack on representative government. None of us agree with Mr. Bond's views on the Vietnam War; in fact we strongly repudiate these views. But unless otherwise determined by a court of law, which the Georgia Legislature is not, he is entitled to express them."

Horton was known as a moderate, a Rockefeller Republican and "the least partisan of Representatives." He rose to the position of Ranking Minority Member of the Government Operations Committee (now known as the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.)

Horton retired from Congress in 1993 when redistricting placed him in the same district as his friend Rep. Louise Slaughter.{{Frank Horton, Former Dean of House Delegation, Dies at 84 - The New York ... The New York Times › obituaries › fran...}}

While in Congress, Horton proposed making the United States Environmental Protection Agency a cabinet-level agency and helped introduce the Whistleblower Protection Act in 1987.. Horton also introduced legislation which designated the month of May as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
