Join us for breakfast with Congressman Dave Brat
For years in Virginia -- and long before he entered politics -- the media, elected officials, and community organizations
sought out Dr. Dave Brat for his insight on the economy and budgets. That’s because Dave combines an expertise in economics, the principles of our constitutional founding, and the practice of real-world ethics to show lawmakers
and others how governments’ decisions affect average citizens
Dave served two Virginia governors on their economic advisory boards, providing them with critical economic forecasts to help manage
the Commonwealth. He also served as president of the Virginia Association of Economists.
It’s precisely because he’s an economist that Dave understands that a free and growing economy is necessary for people to have
good jobs, raise stable families, and thrive in this country. His message of economic prosperity has spread not only through
the Seventh District of Virginia, it is spreading throughout the nation.
He has a masters of divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in economics from American University.
He worked for the World Bank and in the private sector for Arthur Andersen before he became a professor of economics
and chairman of the economics department at Randolph Macon College.
He and his wife, Laura, have two children, Jonathan and Sophia, who attend public schools.
Dave is the only economist in Congress.
