InfoRepresentative Martha Roby (ROH-bee) is currently in her fourth term serving the people of Alabama’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Prior to being elected to Congress, Representative Roby worked as an attorney and served as a city councilman in her hometown of Montgomery.
In the House, Representative Roby has been a forceful advocate for cutting wasteful spending and eliminating bureaucratic red tape that burdens American families and businesses. Representative Roby is a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, which has oversight on the whole range of government spending. Representative Roby serves on the Defense Subcommittee, the Labor, Education, Health and Human Services Subcommittee, and the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science. She is the first representative from Alabama's Second Congressional District to serve on this key congressional committee.

Representative Roby also serves on the House Judiciary Committee.

In her short tenure in Congress, Representative Roby has distinguished herself as an effective legislator and messenger for the conservative cause. She exposed abuses in the scandal-ridden Veterans Affairs health system and has worked tirelessly to improve care for veterans, both locally and nationally. A fierce advocate for the military, Representative Roby is leading efforts to stop devastating cuts that threaten military readiness.

Representative Roby obtained a Bachelor of Music degree from New York University in 1998 and her law degree from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 2001. Representative Roby is married to Riley Roby and they have two children, Margaret and George. The Robys are members of Trinity Presbyterian Church, where they were married, their children were baptized and where they are involved in various ministries.
