About

Bob Good – VA05Born in Pennsylvania before moving to New Jersey, Bob’s family relocated to Lynchburg, Virginia when he was 9 years old and his father decided to attend seminary.  One of four boys, he grew up in a modest home and learned the importance and necessity of hard work from a young age.  Because his family often struggled for the bare necessities, Bob learned to appreciate the generosity of friends and others who provided assistance to his family during those financially challenging periods of his childhood.

Thanks to the continued benevolence of others, Bob was able to attend high school at Liberty Christian Academy, and he and his brothers became wrestlers.  His devotion to the sport led to him winning a state championship and a partial scholarship to Liberty University.  Bob’s involvement in wrestling would span four decades as a competitor, coach, administrator, and mentor of young men.  The lessons learned in the sport still impact his life today, along with the young men that he was able to influence over many years.

Bob graduated from Liberty University in 1988 and soon married his college sweetheart, Tracey.  With a degree in Finance, he was hired by CitiFinancial in their lending division.  During his 17-year tenure, Bob ascended from branch manager, to area training director, and eventually to district manager, overseeing operations in northern Georgia, southeastern Tennessee, and ultimately central and southwest Virginia.

Bob left CitiFinancial in 2005 to accept a position as Sr. Associate Athletic Director for Development and Executive Director of the Flames Club at his alma mater, Liberty University.  During his nearly 15 years at Liberty, he raised $20 million to help student-athletes from all backgrounds experience the opportunity to receive an outstanding Christ-centered education while competing in NCAA Division I athletics.  Liberty’s stated mission to Train Champions for Christ had a profound impact upon Bob as a student-athlete and inspired his decades-long dedication to the university and the student-athletes who he later helped provide that same opportunity.  He completed his MBA in Leadership from Liberty in 2010.

Bob is a born-again Christian, and his devotion to his faith is the guiding influence in his life.  He served more than 15 years as an adult Sunday school teacher, and for 10 years as a church deacon.

Elected to office in 2015, Bob served on the Campbell County Board of Supervisors and completed his term in December of 2019.  During his time on the board, Bob was known for his staunch positions on reducing taxes and regulations, encouraging economic growth, and prioritizing funding for law enforcement and public safety.  In addition, Bob was a vocal supporter of the Second Amendment, preservation of our right-to-work laws, and protector of the rights of individual property owners.

Bob has been married to Tracey for over 30 years and is the proud father of three grown children:  Patrick, Sydney, and Conner.

CONGRESS

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

When the government spends wastefully, it makes important spending more difficult. Decades of unchecked federal spending have resulted in a national debt of over $28 trillion – a sum that equates to more than $224,000 of debt per taxpayer. Since 2018, over $9 trillion has been added to the national debt under House Democrats’ watch. That’s more than the combined deficits under all previous 72 years of Republican House majorities.

 

As part of my solution to cut federal spending and save taxpayer money, I introduced the Nickel Plan in Congress to require the federal government to reduce its budget by one nickel for every dollar it spends annually over a period of five years. My proposal would keep more money in the pockets of hardworking Americans while simultaneously reining in out of control federal spending. We cannot allow the current administration to put Washington elites first while placing a growing and unreasonable burden on the American taxpayer.

 

Our country cannot continue this race towards fiscal insanity. I am working tirelessly to curb federal spending. I will continue my fight to keep money where it belongs—in the wallets of hard-working taxpayers.

Human Rights

PROTECTING LIFE

The right to life is a foundational principle of our nation, rooted in the Declaration of Independence, which states that governments are instituted in order to protect the God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There is no greater responsibility of government than the protection of precious, innocent life.

 

In addition to protecting preborn life, I am deeply concerned by efforts to trample over the conscience rights of taxpayers who have sincere objections to abortion. According to a January 2021 poll from Marist and the Knights of Columbus, a majority of Americans do not support government funding of abortion. Historically, federal and state law protect conscience rights for those who have religious objections to abortion. Conscience rights are grounded in the First Amendment and the very essence of our Bill of Rights. Freedom of conscience must be defended despite efforts in the legislature and judiciary to strip this fundamental right. It is important that the Hyde Amendment and the Hyde principle of protecting life are included in all bills relating to funding of government health services so that taxpayer funds are not used to pay for abortions in the United States or abroad.

 

SECOND AMENDMENT

I believe that the federal government may not infringe on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. This God-given, constitutionally recognized right ensures that Americans can protect their lives, their property, and ultimately, their liberty. The Constitution’s Framers knew that a free society could exist only if the people were truly sovereign and able to act as a check against tyrannical government. Self-defense is essential to fulfilling that role.

The Second Amendment and public safety go hand-in-hand—and the federal government has a duty to protect both. Data suggests that gun control laws do not contribute significantly to the prevention of violent crime. Rather, these restrictions act as a barrier between law-abiding citizens and their Constitutional right. Instead of restricting gun rights, I believe that our communities can remain safe by funding and resourcing law enforcement, enacting and enforcing strong legal penalties for criminals, and permitting citizens to defend themselves.

Veterans

I believe strongly in the federal government’s duty to care for veterans. Our veterans face unique challenges as they transition to civilian life. From workforce training and education, to health care and disability assistance, there are many opportunities for our nation to show our appreciation by ensuring our veterans have access to the highest quality of care and other needed support.

IMMIGRATION AND BORDER SECURITY

Since our nation’s founding, lawful immigration policy has contributed to a strong country, comprised of hardworking Americans from a variety of backgrounds. Without defined borders, strong values, and reverence for the rule of law, America could not endure or protect its diverse community of citizens. Unfortunately, the rule of law has been degraded by weak border security and outright defiance of our immigration laws.

 

As a nation, we must hold tightly to the principles that define and unite us, chief among which is the rule of law. Responsible immigration policies and border security strengthen our country, while unchecked migration and a lawless border are significant threat to our national security, our economic security, and our health security. I will work to oppose policies that allow illegal immigration to occur, placing the needs of American citizens—and legal immigrants—before the needs of those who disregard the law.

District

Source: Wikipedia

Virginia’s fifth congressional district is a United States congressional district in the commonwealth of Virginia. The 5th district includes the majority of Southside Virginia. Within the district are the cities of Charlottesville, Danville, and Lynchburg.

The district’s first representative in Congress was James Madison, who defeated James Monroe in the district’s first congressional election. Madison and Monroe would go on to serve as the 4th and 5th Presidents of the United States. The current Congressman is Republican Bob Good. Historically, the 5th was one of the first districts of Virginia to turn Republican in presidential elections – though unlike the 6th where the decisive factor was ticket-splitting by Byrd Organization Democrats, here the decisive factor was the growth of middle-class Republicanism in the Charlottesville metropolitan area. In the decade preceding the Voting Rights Act, these were joined by a significant proportion of Virginia’s limited and almost entirely white electorate who preferred conservative positions on black civil rights. The district was to be one of two in Virginia which gave a plurality of the vote to segregationist George Wallace in 1968, and has never supported a Democrat for president since Harry S. Truman in 1948.

However, the district was continuously represented in Congress by fairly conservative Democrats until Virgil H. Goode Jr. switched parties, first to independent and then to Republican. In 2008, Democrat Tom Perriello defeated Goode with significant Democratic down-ballot coattails from the Obama campaign. Republican Robert Hurt defeated Perriello in 2010, going on to serve three terms. After Hurt left office, the district continued to elect Republicans, including Tom Garrett, Denver Riggleman, who both served one term, and Bob Good, who was re-elected in 2022.

Wikipedia

Robert George Good (born September 11, 1965)[1] is an American politician from the Commonwealth of Virginia. A member of the Republican Party, he is currently the U.S. representative from Virginia’s 5th congressional district.

Prior to his election to Congress, Good served as a member of the Board of Supervisors in Campbell County, Virginia for three years. He also worked in development at his alma mater, Liberty University, and for Citi.

He was first elected to Congress in 2020 winning a Republican primary against incumbent Denver Riggleman campaigning on a right-wing platform. Since his election, Good has been a leading conservative figure in Congress as a member of the Freedom Caucus and supporting the removal of Kevin McCarthy arguing he failed to deliver on promises to reduce spending.

Early life and education

Good was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and lived in North Jersey before moving to Lynchburg, Virginia, with his family at age nine.[2][3] He attended Liberty Christian Academy, where he was a member of the wrestling team.[4] Good was awarded a partial wrestling scholarship to Liberty University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in finance and a Master of Business Administration.[5]

Career

For 17 years, Good worked for Citi Financial.[6] When he announced his campaign for Congress in 2019, he was serving as an associate athletic director for development at Liberty University.[7]

Good was a member of the Campbell County Board of Supervisors from 2016 to 2019.[8] During his three years as a county supervisor, he supported socially conservative causes, voting to condemn the U.S. Supreme Court decision recognizing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage; to declare the county a “Second Amendment sanctuary“; and to call upon the Virginia General Assembly to restrict transgender bathroom use.[6]

U.S. House of Representatives

Elections

2020

Good ran against incumbent Denver Riggleman in the Republican nominating convention for Virginia’s 5th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives.[9] He defeated Riggleman with 58% of the vote from party delegates during a drive-through nominating convention instead of a primary election.[10] During the campaign, Good criticized Riggleman for officiating at the same-sex wedding of two former campaign volunteers.[11][12]

Good campaigned on a far-right platform, espousing hard-line views on immigration policy and opposition to same-sex marriage[13] and aligning himself with President Donald Trump.[6] He called for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act[6] and rejected public health measures to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.[13] He did not wear a face covering or encourage the wearing of face coverings at campaign events, and opposed restrictions on businesses to slow the spread of the virus.[13] Good suggested that the wearing of face coverings might be harmful.[13] In the November 3 general election, Good defeated Democratic nominee Cameron Webb, a physician, 52.6% (210,988) to 47.4% (190,315).[6]

Tenure

After his election, Good appeared amid the pandemic at a rally in Washington, D.C., in which Trump supporters protested the Supreme Court’s rejection of a lawsuit attempting to subvert the results of the election, which Trump lost to Joe Biden.[13] During the rally, Good promoted the theory that Democrats had perpetrated a vast conspiracy to steal the election. He said that while the virus was real, the pandemic was “phony”.[13] Good told a maskless crowd that “this is a phony pandemic” and, the next day, suggested that precautions to prevent the spread of the disease were a “hoax”.[13]

On January 6, 2021, Good voted against certifying the election of President-elect Biden.[13] On January 17, he voted against a House bill awarding Congressional Gold Medals to the U.S. Capitol Police and the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department for their roles in protecting the Capitol and members of Congress during the storming of the United States Capitol.[14][15] He and 20 other House Republicans voted against a similar resolution in June 2021.[16]

On June 17, 2021, Good was one of 49 House Republicans to vote to repeal the AUMF against Iraq.[17][18]

On June 26, 2021, Good appeared at Bedford County, Virginia‘s, second annual militia muster, saying he was happy to be at the event with “proud patriots and constitutional conservatives who are doing their part to help strengthen our nation and to fight for the things that we believe in”.[19]

In July 2021, Good voted against the bipartisan ALLIES Act, which would have increased the number of special immigrant visas for Afghan allies of the U.S. military by 8,000 during its invasion of Afghanistan while also reducing some application requirements that caused long application backlogs. The bill passed the House 407–16.[20]

In September 2021, Good was among 75 House Republicans to vote against the National Defense Authorization Act of 2022, which contains a provision that would require women to register for selective service.[21][22]

On October 26, 2021, while the House discussed anti-domestic violence legislation, Good said: “Nearly everything that plagues our society can be attributed to a failure to follow God’s laws for morality and his rules for and definition of marriage and family.”[23]

In October 2021, Good encouraged a group of high school students from Rappahannock County, Virginia, to defy a local school mask mandate, saying, “If nobody in Rappahannock complies, they can’t stop everyone”.[24]

In November 2021, Good wrote Virginia Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin a letter asking him to halt a federal mask mandate once he took office.[25]

In December 2021, Good was among 19 House Republicans to vote against the final passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022.[26]

On January 11, 2022, Good urged fellow Republicans to boycott the Capitol Hill Club, a popular dining spot for Republican officials, after it mandated that all guests must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.[27]

On March 1, 2022, Good said he would not attend President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address: “President Biden subjected the country to life-altering mandates for over a year. I will not submit to an unnecessary COVID test to attend a State of the Union only to hear this president whisper through a speech that will inevitably fail to take responsibility for the tremendous damage he has and continues to cause to our country.”[28]

In September 2022, Good was one of 39 Republicans to vote for the Merger Filing Fee Modernization Act of 2022, an antitrust package that would crack down on corporations for anti-competitive behavior.[29][30]

Good has been a supporter of efforts to impeach President Joe Biden. During the 117th United States Congress, Good was co-sponsor of three resolutions to impeach President Biden.[31] Good also co-sponsored a resolution to impeach Vice President Kamala Harris[32] and another resolution to impeach Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.[33] During the 118th Congress, Good cosponsored another resolution to impeach Mayorkas.[34]

As of the 117th Congress, Good voted with President Joe Biden‘s stated position 2.7% of the time according to a FiveThirtyEight analysis.[35] He supported the removal of Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House arguing he failed to deliver on promises to reduce government spending.[36]

Good voted to support Israel following the 2023 Hamas attack on Israel.[37][38]

Syria

In 2023, Good was among 47 Republicans to vote in favor of H.Con.Res. 21 which directed President Joe Biden to remove U.S. troops from Syria within 180 days.[39][40]

Immigration

Good sponsored H.R. 6202, the American Tech Workforce Act of 2021, introduced by Representative Jim Banks. The legislation would establish a wage floor for the high-skill H-1B visa program, thereby significantly reducing employer dependence on the program. The bill would also eliminate the Optional Practical Training program that allows foreign graduates to stay and work in the United States.[41]

Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023

Good was among the 71 Republicans who voted against final passage of the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 in the House.[42]

2023 Speaker election

Removal of Speaker McCarthy

On October 3, 2023, Biggs was one of eight Republicans who voted to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House; during the debate which preceded the vote, Good had criticized McCarthy for allowing the passage of a temporary spending bill which did not include any conservative policy.

Committee assignments

Caucus memberships

Personal life

Good and his wife, Tracey, have three children.[46] They live in Evington, southwest of Lynchburg.

Good has described himself as a born-again Christian and a “biblical conservative”.[47][48]
