Congressman Bob Dold

Topic: Congressman Dold's Efforts and Initiatives Affecting the Latino Community in Lake County

Congressman Bob Dold is currently in his second term serving the people of Illinois’ 10th Congressional District.

A native of northern Illinois, Bob was born at Evanston Hospital and grew up with his three sisters in the same house where his parents still reside. Like his father, Bob graduated from New Trier High School.

After high school, he continued a family tradition and earned a B.A. from Denison University. He later earned a law degree from Indiana University, where he was selected by his classmates to give the commencement address, and a Masters in Business Administration from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

Prior to being elected to Congress in 2010, Bob served as President of his family’s business, Rose Pest Solutions, the oldest pest management company in the United States, which serves families and businesses throughout the 10th District and beyond.

Bob first ran for Congress in 2010 and was elected that year to serve the 10th District in the U.S. House of Representatives. During his first term he served on the prestigious Committee on Financial Services and amassed a record as one of the most effective, independent and bipartisan members of the 112th Congress. He was deemed the most effective freshman in Congress at advancing his legislative agenda.

After a two-year break in service, Bob was again elected to represent Illinois' 10th District in Congress in November of 2014 and was sworn in as a member of the 114th Congress in January of 2015. He serves on the Committee on Ways and Means, which is the chief tax-writing committee of the United States Congress. Serving on the committee gives the Tenth District an even larger role in advancing solutions to some of the most pressing challenges we face. Bob is committed to advancing bipartisan legislation to grow the economy, protect our environment, and ensure the safety and security of America’s homeland, as well that of our greatest ally, Israel.

Bob and his wife Danielle are the proud parents of three children – Harper, Bobby and Honor. Bob is also an active member of his local community, having served as the scoutmaster for Troop 13 Senior Scouts over the past 14 years – the same troop where he became an Eagle Scout.

Bob has served on the Board for the Boys & Girls Club of Lake County and volunteered his time as a board member for the Northeast Illinois Council for the Boy Scouts of America. Bob also has been active with the Honor Flight program, which is committed to ensuring that those who so bravely served this country in World War II have the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. and visit the WWII Memorial.
