Congressman Guy Reschenthaler was sworn into office on January 3, 2019 to represent Pennsylvania’s 14th Congressional District including Washington, Fayette, Greene, and portions of Westmoreland Counties.
The son of former teachers, Guy was raised in southwestern Pennsylvania, graduated from Penn State, The Behrend College, and completed law school at Duquesne University.
After law school, Guy fulfilled a lifelong dream and joined the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General Corps and volunteered for duty in Iraq.
In Baghdad, Guy prosecuted nearly 100 terrorists, including some of Iraq’s most dangerous terrorists. He also successfully defended a Navy SEAL falsely accused of mishandling the Butcher of Fallujah.
Stateside, he served as a Navy lawyer in Norfolk, Va. and then in Texas and Oklahoma, where he was the first uniformed military officer ever to share in the prestigious Michael Taylor Shelby Award, given annually by the Southern District of Texas Chapter of the Federal Bar Association for outstanding ethics and professionalism.
Back home in southwestern Pennsylvania, Guy worked in private practice at a multi-state law firm and was elected Magisterial District Judge, winning the nomination of both parties.
Congressman Reschenthaler previously served in the State Senate representing portions of Allegheny and Washington County. In the State Senate, Reschenthaler’s priorities included improving education opportunities, limiting government and lowering taxes, and reforming the pension system.
