Congressman Joe Kennedy, III is currently in his fourth term in Congress, where he represents a diverse district that stretches from the suburbs of Boston to the cities of Massachusetts’ South Coast.

As a member of the influential House Energy & Commerce Committee, Congressman Kennedy’s legislative agenda is driven by the needs of the families he represents back home. He has worked to expand STEM education to underserved students, fortify community health centers, increase legal assistance for low-income families, end discrimination in health care, and bring down monthly energy bills.

Prior to being elected to Congress, Congressman Kennedy served the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an Assistant District Attorney in both the Middlesex County and Cape and Island’s District Attorneys’ Offices. Before that, he served as a member of the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic. He attended Stanford University and Harvard Law School. He lives with his wife, Lauren, a health policy expert, their daughter, Eleanor, their son, James, and their dog, Banjo, in Newton, Mass.
