John Dennis announces 2012 challenge to Nancy Pelosi
San Francisco, CA-- San Francisco businessman John Dennis has announced his candidacy against Nancy Pelosi in the 2012 general election for California's 12th Congressional District. Mr. Dennis was the Republican Nominee in 2010 effectively for the same race, having garnered the most votes for any opponent of Nancy Pelosi since she took office.
"Nancy Pelosi is out of touch with San Francisco and America," states John Dennis. "Every major problem facing our nation has been exacerbated during her 26 year career in Congress and has escalated since she became both Speaker and now Minority Leader. Ms. Pelosi career in Congress epitomizes Washington's assaults on the liberties of every American."
Dennis continues: "She is emblematic of the corruption in Washington via insider trading, out of control spending that has led to a nearly $15 Trillion national debt, and economic intervention which has lead to significant losses in the labor force. As a self-proclaimed liberal, she has proven hypocritical even when it comes to the wars Washington started and funded in the last ten years, showing again how out of sync she is with her constituents here in San Francisco."
As a common sense Republican, John has proven that he possesses a detailed understanding of issues and the ability to articulate coherent policy positions, which has earned him support among San Francisco's Republican and Independent voters alike. As a Republican in San Francisco, John has maintained a focus on personal liberty and fiscal responsibility.
Born in Jersey City, the son of a longshoreman and a city hall clerk, he grew up in one of the city’s toughest public housing projects. After graduating from Fordham University, John co-founded Humanscale, one of the world's top 10 design firms, specializing in office ergonomics. After a varied career in global development and marketing, John created Foundation Real Estate, a San Francisco-based investment company with domestic and international holdings.
In 2010, John was the Republican nominee against Nancy Pelosi where he garnered more votes than anyone else who has challenged her. Rep. Ron Paul, former Rep. Barry Goldwater, Jr. and many others nationwide, endorsed his candidacy.
John’s background, ideas, campaign to get the economy moving again and desire to protect individual rights is well received nationwide. He is an accomplished businessman, entrepreneur, and has been a pro-liberty Republican for a quarter century. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and daughter.
