About the Speaker 

Andy Kim was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018, representing New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District. Kim, who is currently serving his second term in Congress, sits on the House Committees on Armed Services and Foreign Affairs, where he plays a critical leadership role in rethinking American engagement with China and modernizing U.S. cybersecurity defenses. He is also a member of the House Committee on Small Business and co-chairs the House Democratic Caucus National Security Task Force.
In his first Congressional term, Kim passed bills into law that helped military service members and their families find economic opportunities and stopped the U.S. military from using harmful chemicals that negatively impact water sources. He has held more than two dozen town halls and helped constituents resolve more than 4,300 issues with federal agencies. Before Congress, Kim worked as a career public servant under both Democrats and Republicans. He served at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Pentagon, U.S. Department of State, and in Afghanistan as a strategic advisor to now-retired Generals David Petraeus and John Allen. Kim also served as the Director of Iraq at the National Security Council under President Barack Obama, coordinating the counter-ISIS response.
