InfoCongressman John Boozman, a successful businessman and life-long resident of Arkansas, represents the Third District of Arkansas in Congress.

After graduating Northside High School in Fort Smith, Boozman played football at the University of Arkansas while completing his pre-optometry requirements. He graduated from the Southern College of Optometry in 1977 and entered private practice that same year as co-founder of Boozman-Hof Regional Eye Clinic, which has become a major provider of eye care to Northwest Arkansas.

Boozman has a lengthy history of community service. Prior to his election to Congress, he served two terms on the Rogers School Board, which is one of the largest school districts in the state. He established the low vision program at the Arkansas School for the Blind in Little Rock, and worked as a volunteer optometrist at an area clinic that provides medical services to low-income families.

As a former rancher, Boozman successfully raised Polled Hereford cattle that were competitive in the show ring, as well as in Bull Testing at Oklahoma State University.

Sworn in on November 28, 2001, Boozman was elected in a special election to replace Asa Hutchinson who resigned after accepting President George W. Bush's appointment to become Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration. He currently sits on the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and the House Veterans Affairs Committee.

Boozman, 51, is married to the former Cathy Marley. The couple has three daughters.
