Long-Time San Diego Community Leader, Transplant Patient, Joe Dolphin, Endorses John Mccain
Date:1/18/2008

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the New Hampshire primary, a headline described McCain's presidential campaign as one that was "breathing new life."

Ironically, Joe Dolphin, who announced his endorsement of McCain today en route to U.C.S.D. Medical Center for a lung transplant, is also hoping to receive breath that will give him new life. The long-time San Diego community leader has suffered for many years with AAT (Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin Deficiency Emphysema), a genetic lung disease which is fatal. The only effective treatment is a lung transplant.

"I want my friends to know I support John McCain and hope they will vote for him. He is the only candidate with the right credentials to lead America in these troubled times. He has the judgment, brains, and maturity to be a great President. His judgment is based on carefully weighing the evidence on both sides of issues and making rational and practical decisions. His behavior is controlled by a brain that was strong enough to withstand years of torture as a prisoner of war. As for his maturity, you just have to look at the smiling face with gray and balding hair," Joe proclaimed.

Dolphin was president and CEO of the San Diego-headquartered Medevac, Inc., the first ambulance company to go national, from 1971 to 1993 when he sold the company. He was appointed by Ronald Reagan to the California Emergency Medical Advisory Committee in 1974. He started the City of San Diego Paramedic Program in 1978. In 1981, Medevac was named as one of the nation's 100 fastest growing private companies by INC. magazine. Medevac provided service in the following counties and cities: San Diego, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Missouri and Topeka, Kansas.

As the Republican nominee for California State Senate 39th District, in 1996, Joe received more votes in his district (126,653) than Bob Dole did.

In 1995, Dolphin was President of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges. In 1993, he served as the Foreman of San Diego County's Grand Jury. Back in 1979, Joe was President of Republican Associates of San Diego County.
Joe Dolphin currently resides in Del Mar with his wife, Nancy.

Joe Dolphin's complete resume is available upon request.
