About Roger Polack
Roger Polack grew up in Racine, one of four children in a blue-collar family. After graduating from Horlick High School, he put himself through UW-Madison and ultimately law school at Georgetown University, studying law at night while working on some of the most pressing national security issues our country faces during the day. He served in the Bush and Obama administrations as a civilian intelligence analyst and then a senior policy advisor. Polack deployed to Afghanistan multiple times to take on the Taliban, shut down their financing pipeline, and expose corruption in Afghanistan. He also worked to hold China’s feet to the fire on investment and national security issues and to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Prior to running for Congress, he served as an attorney focusing on public international law and investigations. He’s running for Congress because he wants to continue serving our country and ensure that every family, just like his own, has the opportunity to build a better life for themselves.
