After working as a small business owner for 27 years, Representative Mark Meadows brings a business-style approach to Washington, D.C.
Meadows, the son of an army father, was born in Verdun, France. Shortly after, his family moved to Brandon, Florida near Tampa, where he was raised. He and his wife, Debbie, met in high school and wed shortly after. He attended the University of South Florida, where he studied business management. They later relocated to North Carolina.
In 1987, with a $25,000 credit line, Mark and his wife, Debbie, started a small restaurant. He eventually sold the restaurant and started his own development company. Mark’s political views are shaped by his Christian faith and experience as a small business owner.
He previously served as the Macon County Republican Party chairman, on the Republican Party Executive Committee, and as a delegate to both the North Carolina and National Republican Conventions.
Mr. Meadows serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and is the Vice Chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform’s Subcommittee on Government Operations. Additionally, Mr. Meadows is a congressional delegate to the United Nations and serves as a commissioner on the Congressional-Executive Commission on China. During his time in Congress, he has championed pro-growth jobs policies, a sensible approach to reducing the national deficit, and a robust national defense.
He is dedicated to providing top-notch constituent services to North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District and committed to upholding his Christian values and conservative principles while serving in Congress.
Mark lives in Jackson County with his wife Debbie. They have two college-age children, Blake and Haley.
