In his heart, Pat Meehan is a prosecutor. Starting with his service as District Attorney of Delaware County, and then as the United States Attorney for eastern Pennsylvania, Pat worked hand-in-hand with victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and drug abuse. Meehan brought people together to pioneer innovative ways to prevent crimes before they occur and protect the victims that suffer the most.
Pat Meehan brought this rock-solid prosecutorial experience with him to Congress, where he's earned the praise of the Philadelphia Inquirer for his "ability to work across party lines on projects that mean jobs." He also took on America's newest and most dynamic security threat by leading the Homeland Security Committee's cybersecurity subcommittee in the 113th Congress. Today, Meehan serves on the prestigious House Ways and Means Committee, the body tasked with revamping our nation's broken tax code, and he continues to be one of Congress' most respected voices on homeland security issues. Meehan lives in Delaware County with his wife, Carolyn, and his three college-aged sons. Learn more about Pat.
