Jim Pullaro is a campaign finance reform activist and initial founder of "Represent All of Us!" advocating for empowering the people through a public political contribution fund.
Jim's Democracy Savings Account (DSA) presentation in October 2016 to the American Promise national convention of campaign finance reform organizations in Washington, DC, generated much interest and enthusiasm.
The growing interest in a public political contribution fund is evident by the increasing number of requests to speak on the subject. Jim has honored requests from faculty and students at Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Mesa Community College, and political and civic organizations throughout Arizona. Prior to Jim's political activist activities, Jim spent 40 years as an Arizona Commercial real estate broker, developer, and entrepreneur.
The real estate projects included high-rise and garden office buildings in the Phoenix Central Corridor and Scottsdale, and the development of Karigan Estates on the Navajo Nation, the largest residential and commercial development in Indian county in the U.S.
Jim was also the founder of Arizona School of Real Estate, the largest private real estate educational institution in the southwest; co-owner and executive vice president of Sunrise Preschools, and founder and president of Dependent Care Network. Dependent Care Network offered dependent care solutions to large national institutions. Dependent Care clients included Honeywell, Allied Signal, PCS Card Systems, Xerox and the Cities of Phoenix, Mesa, and Tempe.
Organizations of past involvement include Board Member Arizona Advocacy Network, League of Women Voters and the NAACP.
Jim enrolled at ASU in 1965 under the GI Bill as a disabled Army veteran,
graduating as “Arizona State Universities most Outstanding Graduating Marketing Major, 1969.”
Hello! I am currently a junior at Arizona State University pursuing degrees in Global Health and Political Science. Aside from my involvement with Represent All of Us, I play flute and piano, love to travel, play tennis, and I have a love/hate relationship with vegetables (yes, I'm vegan). I have always had an interest in government and politics, but it was not until college that I delve into the political world, and it was not until I met Jim that I fully began to see a future in politics. I have spent most of my life in Arizona, but have also lived in California and Massachusetts. That being said, I do plan to eventually make my way back to the east coast, and establish myself there.
My involvement with Represent All of Us has taken me to presentations throughout the state, where I have made various connections and friendships. Working alongside Jim has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Post college I plan to continue my work with Represent All of Us to see its success nation-wide.
