Organization Description
Congressman Ken Buck is a Republican from Windsor, representing Colorado's 4th Congressional District. He was first elected to Congress on November 4, 2014, and is currently serving his first term in the United States House of Representatives. Ken serves on the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He serves on the OGR Subcommittees on Government Operations and the Interior and is a member of the Judiciary Subcommittees on Immigration and Border Security and Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations.
