GCP Members are invited to join us for a Morning Conversation with Congressman Dave Joyce.

Dave JoyceA lifelong Ohioan, Dave has dedicated his life to family and community. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1957, Dave’s father, a WWII veteran, was a salesman and mother a proud housewife. Dave graduated from West Geauga High School and went on to receive his BA in Accounting, and Juris Doctorate, from The University of Dayton. Upon graduation, he moved back to Cuyahoga County and worked as a public defender.

In November 2012, Dave was elected to represent the 14th District of Ohio for the 113th Congress. This Congress, the 116th, is his fourth term in office. Dave serves on the influential House Committee on Appropriations, which is the committee responsible for scrutinizing federal spending and determining how your tax dollars are spent.

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Dave serves Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Subcomittee on Interior and Environment.

Since he came to Congress, Dave has established himself as the leader in Congress in bipartisan efforts to preserve and protect the Great Lakes. His service on the Appropriations Committee has enabled Dave to help reduce federal discretionary spending by over $21 Billion in FY14, which is the first time since the Korean War spending has been cut 4 consecutive years.

Keeping with a tradition he established while serving as Geauga County Prosecutor, Dave has returned more than $300,000 from his Congressional budget to the U.S. Treasury since 2013.
