Bio

Born in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1954, Doug had service-before-self instilled in him at an early age by his father, a World War II combat veteran and a corrections officer at the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary.

After meeting his wife Jeanie, Doug graduated from the University of Kansas with a Journalism Degree (as a National Merit Scholar). As they began to raise their five children, Doug worked hard to put himself through law school, earning a law degree from the University of Kansas before moving his family to Colorado Springs, Colorado to practice business and real estate law.

It was in Colorado that Doug was called to public office and served in the Colorado General Assembly from 1995 to 2006, in both the State House and State Senate. During his time in the Colorado Legislature, Doug was elected Senate President Pro-Tem, served as Chairman of the Senate State Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, Chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus, and House Majority Whip. He was also the lead sponsor of the largest tax cut in Colorado history. Doug also introduced legislation creating a license plate honoring Bronze Star recipients, exempting active duty soldiers from paying state income taxes, allowing public school students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, eliminating and reducing state services to illegal immigrants, banning late-term abortions, implementing DNA testing of convicted felons, eliminating sales tax on telephone service, eliminating the business personal property tax for thousands of businesses, and repealing expired and outdated laws. While serving in the part-time State Legislature, Doug continued to practice law and raise a family. Doug was then elected to the US House of Representatives in 2006 to represent Colorado's Fifth District. Colorado's Fifth District, based in Colorado Springs, is one of our nation's most military-intensive congressional districts and the proud home to more than 100,000 veterans who have served our country with distinction and honor. Because of the district's military and veterans concentration, Doug serves as a high-ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee. In this roles, he has protected important national defense funding, programs, and missions and has fought hard for the right of veterans to receive the healthcare they have earned. Additionally, the Congressman has worked since his first full day in office to bring about a dignified and fitting National Veterans Cemetery to the Pikes Peak Region, and he is well on the way to achieving that goal, with construction slated to begin in the near future. Additionally Doug serves on the the Strategic Forces and Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittees of the House Armed Services Committee. The Strategic Forces Subcommittee oversees our nation's strategic weapons, ballistic missile defense, space programs, and Department of Energy national security programs (excluding nonproliferation programs). It makes sure our nation is properly prepared for any missile or nuclear attacks. The Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee is responsible for overseeing counter-terrorism programs and initiatives and counter proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Doug also serves as the Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee's Subcommittee on Water, Power, and Oceans. This Subcommittee is responsible for water resources, federal irrigation projects, hydroelectric energy efforts, interstate water issues, fisheries, and more. This new assignment places him in the middle of important concerns affecting the West. Doug is looking forward to working with diverse groups who have a stake in the region's water future and is committed to providing the leadership and oversight needed to ensure stable and clean water supplies for the Fifth Congressional District and for Colorado. Throughout his time in public service, Doug has been a leader on pro-family and small business issues, a strong advocate for our veterans and our military, and a supporter of lower taxes, immigration reform, less government spending, and protection of the Second Amendment.

Doug is married to Jeanie, his wife of 41 years and an accomplished artist and former teacher at the Bemis School of Art in Colorado Springs. The Lamborns have also raised five extremely successful children. Their four sons were Eagle Scouts and, among them, have served as a doctor, in the military, as an attorney, and as a member of the creative arts community in Los Angeles. Their daughter was an accomplished collegiate track and field athlete and holds a Master's Degree in Journalism. The family has continued to grow with the addition of a son-in-law who works in the medical field and two daughters-in-law, one of whom is a Christian missionary and one of whom served as a Deputy District Attorney in El Paso County. The youngest members of the family are three beloved grandchildren.
