Congressman Gerald E. Connolly
Congressman Gerald E. “Gerry” Connolly is serving his fifth term in the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia’s 11th District, which includes Fairfax County, Prince William County, the towns of Dumfries and Herndon, and the City of Fairfax in Northern Virginia.
Connolly serves on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Through his background in foreign policy and his work on the Foreign Affairs Committee, Connolly has become a leading voice on foreign assistance reform, war powers, embassy security, and democracy promotion abroad. He also serves on the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa and the Subcommittee and Asia and the Pacific.
After graduating from Harvard, Connolly spent 10 years on the staff of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where he handled numerous foreign policy issues including oversight of international economic issues and policies concerning the Middle East and the United Nations.
Congressman Connolly also worked in the non-profit sector, primarily advocating for hunger aid and international assistance. He also has strong ties to the business community having spent two decades working for organizations and companies involved in international trade, regulatory matters, technology, and research.
With such a strong background DemBiz is excited to have Gerry speak on Foreign Policy, National Security and Terrorism going into the new year.
