About U.S. Congressman Peter Roskam
Born and raised in the district he serves, Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam is now in his fourth term in the United States House of Representatives. According to the Washington Post, Roskam “serves as a calming, drama-free influence” on Capitol Hill, and is regularly praised for his ability to distill complex national issues to their core.
Roskam graduated from the University of Illinois before spending his early career in the office of his mentor, legendary Congressman Henry Hyde. He later earned his J.D. from Kent College of Law. Roskam has represented Chicago's western suburbs in both the Illinois House of Representatives and Senate, where he served alongside then State-Senator Barack Obama.
Often referred to as the House Republicans’ “listener-in-Chief,” Roskam uses his roles in leadership and on the Ways and Means committee to fight for fiscal responsibility and common sense tax initiatives; he is a co-author of the Pledge to America and played an active role in securing a landslide House majority in 2010.
Roskam currently lives in Wheaton with his wife of 25 years, Elizabeth. They have four children, Gracey, Frankie, Steve and A.J. Visit his US House of Representatives website at http://roskam.house.gov/.
