John David Anderson Congressional Candidate Ohio District 10
Understands the System
John has dedicated more than 30 years to serving his country as a civilian United States Air Force acquisition logistics and sustainment manager. He has seen how government works, from the inside out. He understands the processes and how to work within the system to effect change. And in fact, he was responsible for the establishment of new purchasing procedures that saved countless amounts of taxpayers’ dollars (hundreds of millions) in Air Force spending, often at great sacrifice to his personal career, due to his willingness to challenge the status quo and persuade those in power.
John is a uniquely qualified candidate in this district since he combines extensive experience in military acquisition and logistics, service in federal bureaucracy, and actual experience in managing and saving taxpayers’ funds (unlike most federal bureaucrats). John also possesses a Top Secret/SCI security clearance, which means he has been entrusted with safeguarding America’s vital national security interests. His reputation is that he “thinks outside of the box” to get things done.
