InfoCongressman J.D. Hayworth represents Arizona's 6th Congressional District in Washington, D.C. He is serving his fourth two-year term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

J.D. serves on the House Ways and Means Committee, the first Representative from Arizona to be appointed to this important post. The Ways and Means Committee is responsible for all tax-related legislation, as well as issues involving trade, Social Security and Medicare. J.D. also serves on the Resources Committee. He is an Assistant Whip in the leadership organization. He was elected chairman of the House Conservative Opportunity Society for the 107th Congress.

J.D. founded and chairs the Constitutional Caucus and sponsored the "Congressional Responsibility Act," which improves accountability in the legislative process. J.D. also chaired a bi-partisan task force that investigated the possible misuse of over $2.4 billion in Indian Trust Fund accounts. In his first term, National Review magazine listed J.D. as one of the top ten conservative newcomers to Congress.

Prior to his election to Congress, J.D. was a public relations consultant, an insurance agent, and a radio news commentator. His media career included both radio and television, most notably seven years as a sports anchor on channel 10 in Phoenix.

A member of several local Republican organizations, J.D. is a Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary International. He attends the North Ridge Community Church, serves as a volunteer reader for various community groups, and is a speaker for D.A.R.E. He is also active in scouting, having earned the Eagle Scout Award.

J.D. goes home almost every weekend to his Arizona district, meeting with constituents and spending time with his family. District 6, one of the largest geographically in the nation, includes the northern and eastern portions of Maricopa County. It stretches to Pinal County in the south, Utah in the north and New Mexico in the east.

He earned a bachelor's degree, cum laude, from North Carolina State University in speech communications and political science in 1980.

J.D. and his wife Mary have three children and reside in Scottsdale, Arizona.
