Brad Wenstrup was elected in 2012 to represent the people of Ohio’s Second Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. He brings experience as a doctor, Army Reserve officer, Iraq War veteran, and small business owner to help Congress tackle the economic and security challenges facing the nation.
Brad supports balancing the federal budget by cutting government spending, reforming federal retirement programs, and reducing taxes and regulations on employers so they can invest, grow, and hire. As a doctor, he supports repealing the President’s health care law and replacing it with market-based solutions that protect the doctor-patient relationship.
In the 113th Congress, Brad serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, where he is working to strengthen our military and national defense, help our returning service members transition to civilian life, and support southern Ohio’s veteran community.
A Cincinnati native, Brad graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1980. He earned a medical degree as a podiatric surgeon and later established a private practice in Cincinnati, treating patients for the last 26 years. Brad has served in the U.S. Army Reserve since 1998, currently holding the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In 2005-06, he served a tour in Iraq as a combat surgeon, and was awarded a Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge for his service. During his time in Congress, Brad is fulfilling his Reserve duties by treating patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda.
Brad and his wife, Monica, reside in Cincinnati.
Great to join Willowville Elementary for their 38th annual Memorial Day parade to honor those who sacrificed for our country.
I hope to see you there next Tuesday morning:
Currently considering legislation in the VA Committee to better help veterans as they access their GI Bill benefits, including my bill, HR 475. Watch
Yesterday morning, I joined the USO and some of my fellow Members of Congress to assemble care packages for our men and women serving overseas.
It’s always a pleasure to meet with students from Ohio’s Second District. Welcome to D.C., St. Columban School!
