Rep. John Campbell:
|Elected to represent the 45th Congressional District of California, John Campbell is currently serving his fifth term in the United States House of Representatives. Over the last eight years, Campbell has quickly become a leading voice of fiscal conservatism and a recognized champion of economic freedom, lower taxes and the right of the individual.
As both a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and small business owner, Campbell is a leader in Congress that champions the need for fiscal restraint and responsible budgetary measures. Above all else, he believes that the enormous debt accrued in this country from out of control spending and exploding deficits is the greatest threat to America’s future security, prosperity and hegemony in the world. The primary author of the Earmark Reform Pledge and an ardent proponent of eliminating “pork barrel” spending, he helped bring about the earmark ban enacted by House Republicans in 2011. This ban continues to exist in the 113th Congress. |
Campbell chairs the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade and on the House Committee on the Budget, where he has had a hand in crafting portions of The Roadmap for America’s Future. He is also a leading author of the Taxpayer Choice Act, which would make America's tax system simpler and fairer by providing the opportunity to take advantage of an optional flat tax, in addition to repealing the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT).
John holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in economics from the University of California at Los Angeles, and a Masters Degree in business taxation from the University of Southern California. He currently serves as an Adjunct Professor at Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Public Policy in Malibu, California. For nearly 25 years, John worked in the automotive industry. He spent a majority of his career representing several automobile franchises, including Nissan, Mazda, Ford, Saturn and Saab.
He represents California's 45th Congressional District which encompasses Irvine, Tustin, North Tustin, Lake Forest, Laguna Woods, Laguna Hills, Villa Park, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Coto De Caza, and portions of the cities of Anaheim and Orange.
