Veterans Affairs

Congressman Phil Roe represents the First Congressional District of Tennessee, which includes Carter, Cocke, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi, Washington, Jefferson and Sevier Counties. A resident of Johnson City serving his third term in Congress, Phil has a strong work ethic that is committed to working on behalf of the First District, Tennessee and our nation.

A native of Tennessee, Phil was born on July 21, 1945 in Clarksville. He earned a degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Austin Peay State University in 1967 and went on and to earn his Medical Degree from the University of Tennessee in 1970. Upon graduation, he served two years in the United States Army Medical Corps.

Congressman Roe serves on two Committees that allow him to address and influence the many issues that are important to the First District students, teachers, veterans and workers:

  • Education and the Workforce — Serves as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions
  • Veterans’ Affairs — Serves on the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee and the Subcommittee on Health

While these committees put the First Congressional District in a position to be at the forefront of many debates, Congressman Roe has been an active voice on taxes, government spending, energy, transportation and protecting our values.

As a physician, Congressman Roe has become an active player in the effort to reform our nation’s health care system. He is a member of the Physicians’ Caucus and the Health Caucus.

Prior to serving in Congress, Phil served as the Mayor of Johnson City from 2007 to 2009 and Vice Mayor from 2003 to 2007. As a physician, Phil ran a successful medical practice in Johnson City for 31 years, delivering close to 5,000 babies.

Phil and his wife Pam have three children: David C. Roe, John Roe, and Whitney Larkin. They are proud to have two grandchildren. Phil and Pam are members of Munsey United Methodist Church.
