RSVP for this event.
As one of the few former Fortune 500 business executives in Congress, Congressman Hoekstra brings a unique blend of experience and perspective as he represents Michigan's Second Congressional District in Washington. Congressman Hoekstra was originally sworn in to the 103rd Congress in 1993. He then served a key role in the development of the Contract with America, which was instrumental in gaining a Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years.
In August, 2004, Congressman Hoekstra was named Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He has served on the Committee since Speaker J. Dennis Hastert first appointed him in 2001. In this role, he leads Congressional oversight on issues relating to the U.S. Intelligence Community as the United States defends itself in a global war on terror.
