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.
