Please join the Carolina Law Democrats for their first meeting as they host Congressman David Price.

David Price represents North Carolina's Research Triangle -- a rapidly growing, largely suburban district that includes Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding communities. He received his undergraduate degree at UNC-Chapel Hill and went on to Yale University to earn a bachelor of divinity and Ph.D. in political science. Before he began serving in Congress in 1987, Price was a professor of political science and public policy at Duke University. He is the author of four books on Congress and the U.S. political system.

Price currently serves on the House Appropriations Committee and is chair of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee. He is also a member of the Appropriations subcommittees covering the Environmental Protection Agency, land and water protection, housing and transportation. He is a recognized leader in foreign policy, heading the House Democracy Partnership, which he initiated to help strengthen parliaments in emerging democracies. In North Carolina, his constituents know him as a strong supporter of education, accessible health care, affordable housing, clean air and water, and improved transportation alternatives. 

Price is a native of Erwin, Tennessee. He and his wife Lisa live in Chapel Hill and are parents of two children and proud grandparents of a grandson born in 2006 and a granddaughter born in 2009.
