Jerry is co-chair of the Congressional Campaign Finance Reform Caucus, a caucus he founded for the express purpose of fixing the corruptive influence of money in politics. Jerry formed the caucus because he believes the excessive amount of money poured into elections threatens elected officials’ ability to serve their constituents. He also is a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce and owned his own business manufacturing wind turbines before his time as the representative for California’s 9th district. Jerry is currently the only member of Congress with a Ph.D. in mathematics.
