Rep. Tom Price will speak at the North Fulton Chamber's next Eggs & Enterprise Breakfast on Tuesday, Jan. 29, a little more than a week after the inauguration of President Barack Obama. The Sixth District Republican from Roswell makes his appearance as Congress begins its next debate with the President – and each other – over the debt ceiling.
State Sen. Brandon Beach, R-Alpharetta, who also is president and CEO of the North Fulton Chamber, announced in a news release that Price will be the keynote speaker at the breakfast being held at the Country Club of Roswell.

Beach's release calls Price a vibrant leader in Georgia and a diligent and tireless problem solver in Congress. He was first elected to represent Georgia’s 6th district in November 2004. Prior to going to Washington, Price served four terms in the Georgia State Senate – two as Minority Whip. In 2002, he was a leader in Georgia as the Republican party took control of the State Senate, with Price rising to become the first Republican Senate Majority Leader in the history of Georgia.
Price serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means, as well as the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. In the 113th Congress, Price was named vice chairman of the House Committee on the Budget. In previous Congresses, he has served as chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee and Chairman of the Republican Study Committee. Committed to advancing positive solutions under principled leadership, Price has been a fierce opponent of government waste and devoted to limited government and lower spending.
For nearly 20 years, Rep. Price worked in private practice as an orthopedic surgeon. Before coming to Washington he returned to Emory University School of Medicine as an assistant professor and medical director of the Orthopedic Clinic at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, teaching resident doctors in training. He received his Bachelor and Doctor of Medicine degrees from the University of Michigan and completed his Orthopedic Surgery residency at Emory University.
Congressman Price and his wife, Elizabeth, a Roswell City Council member, reside in Roswell. They have one son.
