Info With America's economy in turmoil and thousands of veterans returning from wars abroad, we deserve a Congressman with the experience to get the job done in Washington. Retired Marine Corps Colonel Paul Cook's service and sacrifice to America make him uniquely qualified to serve as our next Congressman.

An infantry officer who served with distinction in the United States Marine Corps and a veteran of the Vietnam War, Paul's military career spanned twenty-six years. His actions in combat earned him a number of honors, including two Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star Medal with Valor Device. Paul retired from the Marine Corps as a colonel.

Retired from active military duty, Paul continued his service by seeking and winning a seat on the Yucca Valley Town Council, ultimately serving as Mayor. Paul became known for his commitment to conservative fiscal policies that protected working families from higher taxes.

In 2006, Paul's neighbors elected him to represent them in the California State Assembly. Since then, Paul has distinguished himself by tackling some of the most important issues of the day, like fighting government corruption, reducing taxes, and increasing penalties on sex offenders who prey on children. As Chair of the Assembly Veterans Affairs Committee, he has been a tireless advocate for veterans and military families.

Holding a lifelong commitment to education, Paul has taught history and political science at Copper Mountain College, California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB), and University of California, Riverside (UCR). Paul holds a master's in political science from UCR and a master's in public administration from CSUSB.

Paul has held leadership posts with his local United Way and Red Cross chapters and served as past Executive Director of the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce. Paul is a member of the Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and American Legion. Paul and his wife Jeanne reside in Yucca Valley.
