John F. (Jack) Reed, member of the Democratic Party, represented Rhode Island in the House of Representatives from 1991 to 1997. During Rhode Island's credit union and banking crisis, he helped secure $180 million in federal loan guarantees to pay off depositors and he won support for federal funding for the design and construction of a project to upgrade the state's freight rail system. During the next six years Reed became a leader on a number of issues including education and health care. [1]

When Senator Claiborne Pell announced his retirement in 1996, Reed won election to Pell's former seat. He was easily reelected to a second term in 2002 and will face reelection in 2008.

Reed was born in Providence, R.I. on November 12, 1949.
