About the Speakers
Congressman Walter Jones has represented Eastern North Carolina for over 22 years, and currently sits on the House Armed Services Committee. During his time in office, Jones has been a voice for an effective, commonsense government that returns power and control to the people. He is an advocate for U.S. veterans and active service members, and co-sponsored more veteran’s legislation than any sitting member of Congress. Jones is a leader in fighting the U.S. trade deficit and leveling the playing field for American workers, as well as curbing special interests in the election process.
Congressman Ro Khanna represents Silicon Valley in California’s 17th Congressional District. Khanna is serving his first term and sits on the House Budget and Armed Services committees. He is committed to representing the people and ideas rooted in Silicon Valley and working to spur greater job creation in the high-tech industry across the U.S. As a political reformer, he is one of only six elected officials to refuse contributions from PACs and lobbyists. He was born in Philadelphia and his parents immigrated to the U.S. from India. Prior to serving in Congress, he taught economics at Stanford University and law at Santa Clara University. He also served as Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of Commerce, and authored Entrepreneurial Nation.
