He was a leader of the successful effort to remove disgraced Democrat Mayor Bob Filner in San Diego, and a major backer of the Paycheck Protection campaign to rein in the corrupting power of the public employee unions. Now, at the request of California’s Republican Members of Congress, John Is serving as Chairman of Give Voters a Voice, the initiative campaign to repeal the gas tax increase.
A successful businessman and CPA, John built his own business from scratch to a $200 million enterprise with almost 100 employees. He is active in charitable organizations, and serves as a Board member for the San Diego USO.

Since 1991, that organization has mobilized 20,000 volunteers and repaired over 1,000 homes.
