Join us for a meet and greet with U.S. Congressman Tom Graves. Tom was first elected to public office in 2002, when he won a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives. After serving in the General Assembly for more than seven years, he was sworn in to Congress in June, 2010, after winning a special election.
In Congress, Tom serves on the House Appropriations Committee, which determines how the United States Government spends taxpayer dollars. On this committee, Tom serves as chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee, where he authors the annual bill funding our nation's financial infrastructure, such as the Treasury Department and Small Business Administration. He also serves on the Defense Subcommittee, which funds our national defense, and the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee, which funds our nation's transportation and infrastructure programs, as well as the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
These assignments put Tom on the front lines of the battle to solve America's debt crisis, reduce regulatory burdens and increase opportunities for Georgians to thrive. He works to balance the budget, cut government waste and reform Congress to focus on saving - not spending - taxpayer dollars.
Tom also serves on the powerful House Republican Steering Committee, which is responsible for committee assignments for all Republican members of the House as well as selecting committee chairmen.
