Representative Jack Bergman and Representative Chrissy Houlahan
US House of Representatives
Chrissy Houlahan is an Air Force Veteran, engineer, entrepreneur, and educator who is continuing her career of service as the first woman ever to represent Pennsylvania’s 6th Congressional District.
Rep. Houlahan founded the Servicewomen and Women Veterans Congressional Caucus to consider and enact policy that protects and elevates brave women and honors what they have given to this country. As a member of the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services, she championed legislation accepted into the National Defense Authorization Act that expanded the Women’s Health Transition Program pilot and supported expanding access to child care.
Chrissy is a leader driven by a spirit of service. She’s a mom, a longtime resident of Southeastern Pennsylvania, and a first-time congressional representative for the people and communities of Pennsylvania.
Whether serving as a Three-Star General in the Marine Corps, carrying passengers safely from one destination to another as a pilot for Northwest, or starting his own business in the medical equipment field, Jack Bergman has always been committed to serving others. He’s always been mission- and results-motivated, and as Representative of Michigan’s First Congressional District, that means supporting policies and practices that work for Michiganders. Jack is a Constitutional conservative who is adamant that public service should be about people and not about process. He believes that government’s role is to protect individual rights, to secure a free market economy that creates jobs and opportunities for success, and empower “We the People”—and not politicians or special interest groups—to make decisions about their lives and livelihoods.
In June 2019, Representative Houlahan and Representative Bergman introduced the IMPROVE Well-Being for Veterans Act (Incorporating Measurements and Providing Resources for Outreach to Veterans Everywhere) in the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill would fundamentally enhance coordination and planning of Veteran mental health and suicide prevention services and would develop measurement tools to track the effectiveness of these community-level programs in order to address the suicide crisis and its impact on Veterans.
