Meet John Paul
Why John Paul Moran for Congress?
Unity, Liberty and Opportunity for ALL
John Paul Moran, a leader forging a new political movement for America, will fight for unity, liberty and opportunity for citizens of all backgrounds, ages, races, beliefs and lifestyles if elected to the Massachusetts 6th Congressional District – Opportunity for ALL.
An unconventional candidate, he is an Irish Catholic and “Opportunity” Republican with a large extended family in New England and from coast to coast. John Paul draws his credentials from his American dream as a lifelong entrepreneur and business owner, MIT space telescope scientist, Boston University MBA, gay conservative, digital marketer, author, NCAA athlete, youth surfing brand creator, artist, Massachusetts Realtor, and founder of the nonprofit, Grand Opportunity USA “GOUSA”. His diverse background and life experiences guarantee that he will be a strong and independent voice in the House of Representatives.
Moran proposes changing the GOP from the “Grand Old Party” to the new “Grand Opportunity Party” to help reach a younger and more diverse electorate for the 21st century. He is honored to be a founding member of the RNC’s Conservative Youth Coalition board which is comprised of other highly diverse pro-America people and organizations.
As a resident of Billerica in the 6th District for the past 22 years, John Paul is the right person to represent and support the interests of Massachusetts’ 6th District. He knows what it’s like to meet the challenges of the everyday people, make a living, face the ever increasing taxes, regulations and fees, the high costs of healthcare, worry about our civil and national security, the out of control housing costs, the crumbling transportation infrastructure – and the costly effects of corruption in a one-party state.
About John Paul
The son of a Catholic Deacon and IBM salesperson John, and his mother Annette, a stay at home mom and a CPA, with four close brothers and sisters, John Paul grew up in a tight knit middle class home learning about the American Dream at a young age. He is honored to have had several family members serve in the US Armed Forces, including his nephew who is currently in the US Navy flight school. A distance runner in high school and college, he learned that the more miles he ran, the better he raced; running 80 – 120 miles a week was not the exception but the norm as he became a local and then national running champion. His success on the track taught him how to succeed in business and in life: that the harder you work, the better you will do. “Mo-Ran Ran More“.
John Paul understands that today’s “progressive” values – obsessed with socialism, destructive identity politics, defunding and eliminating our police, wide open borders and demanding equal results regardless of effort, sacrifice and risk – is not fair, equitable, just – or American. That’s like every runner crossing the finish line at the same time regardless of hard work – why work so hard for little or no reward? What is fair, equitable and just is equal opportunity for all regardless of background, race, age, gender or lifestyle, while giving a hand up to those most in need. John Paul will fight hard for providing Opportunity for All in the 6th District, the Commonwealth and America.
Moran worked nonstop to pay his way through college designing logos, signs and T-shirts, earning a BS in Optics at the University of Rochester, and then went on to his first job as an MIT scientist responsible for the optical testing of a space-based telescope at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, MA. The telescope went on a rocket into orbit, when he left to start his own digital marketing agency in Boston which he runs to this day, followed by starting a surfing apparel and films brand, a screen printing shop in Everett, MA, and earning his Executive MBA with high honors at Boston University. He created and pitched a reality TV series to the networks based on his surf brand, “Riding on Glas – Landing the Dream Job” – see it here: https://youtu.be/g0HTmFveUYw
More recently, John Paul founded Grand Opportunity USA “GOUSA”, a 501(c)4 social welfare nonprofit. GOUSA is dedicated to motivating, educating and mobilizing young people, minority groups, people of faith and citizens of all backgrounds to advance American values and advocate for their personal, economic, social, educational and national interests and needs.
As a conservative gay American, John Paul knows what it is like to face the struggles and discrimination associated with his orientation, as then later based on his pro-Liberty political ideals. He came out of the gay closet – and then, out of the conservative closet – to live his life transparently and honestly as staunch supporter of both gay rights and religious liberty.
John Paul Moran has what it takes to be a strong, independent and unconventional voice for Massachusetts in the US House of Representatives. To accomplish his mission for Massachusetts and America, he needs your support!
