Congress

It’s my honor to serve you in the 116thCongress. As your representative, one of my main priorities is to decrease the reach of government on your life. This means decreasing taxes and rolling back excessive regulations.

Members of Congress stand ready to assist if you need help with a federal issue or agency. From VA benefits and USDA farm programs, to problems with Social Security and obtaining a U.S. passport, my staff and I can help.

You also can reach out if you want a commemorative flag flown over the U.S. Capitol, or want to learn about tours of D.C. landmarks, internship opportunities, military academy recommendations and more.
