Congressman Rob Woodall, Representing the 7th Congressional, District of Georgia
A Passion to Serve
Congressman Woodall addressed the Atlanta Trend CEO/CIO Leadership Luncheon in October, 2011.
The Congressman serves in the U.S. House of Representatives on behalf of the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia. This is his first term in office and he serves on the House Committee on Rules and the House Budget Committee.
Born and raised in Georgia, Rob Woodall’s story is one of tireless public service. He graduated from Marist School in 1988, attended Furman University for his undergraduate degree and received his law degree from the University of Georgia. While working on energy and health care policy at a Washington, D.C., law firm during the summer of 1994, he became frustrated with the infamous Clinton Tax Bill and Hillary Health Care Plan and their potential impact on his family, friends, and neighbors in Georgia. Consumed with a need to do more to defeat these policies, Rob was compelled to begin his public service in Washington as a member of Congressman John Linder’s staff.
While working for Congressman Linder, Rob played an integral role in drafting, introducing and advocating for H.R. 25, The FairTax; a bill that would overhaul the entire United States tax code, starting with abolishing all income taxes and replacing them with one, revenue-neutral consumption tax on all goods and services. What started as a small bipartisan bill has become the most highly co-sponsored and revolutionary tax reform bill in Congress thanks in large part to a nation-wide grassroots. On January 3, 2011 – the first day of the 112th Congress, and his very first day in office – Rob re-introduced H.R. 25 with a record number of original co-sponsors.
Rob’s biggest sense of accomplishment is helping Seventh District families one at a time through casework and creating a Congressional office that functions for the people. Rob's political philosophy is guided by the principles of freedom, and he is committed to working on behalf of the Seventh District to restore a positive and fiscally responsible path for America.
