Chairperson of the Defend Reagan Committee
he Honorable Howard Kaloogian has been a successful businessman, educator, attorney and conservative political leader. He has developed a national following with his dedication to public service and his keen and insightful analysis of current events.
Kaloogian served the people of California as a Republican Member of the California State Assembly from 1994-2000 after a successful business career helping senior citizens with their estate planning. Kaloogian was selected as Asssistant Republican Leader, where he led the fight for smaller government and lower taxes.
Assemblyman Kaloogian made history as Chairman of the Recall Gray Davis Committee, an effort which ousted Democrat Governor Gray Davis from office. Kaloogian set up the Recall Gray Davis Committee and its website, www.RecallGrayDavis.com, even fighting off members of his own party who were too timid to act. Davis became the first statewide elected official recalled in California?s history.
Considering Ronald Reagan to be one of his political heroes, Kaloogian agreed to lead the Defend Reagan Committee (website: www.DefendReagan.org). He led hundreds of thousands of Reagan supporters across America to fight against the smear campaign waged against Reagan by CBS, Viacom and Showtime with their anti-Reagan production, ?The Reagans.? So many Reagan supporters flooded the offices of CBS and their sponsors with complaints that the movie was cancelled on network television.
A champion of Proposition 13 and taxpayer hero, Kaloogian is a leading voice for fiscal responsibility, individual freedoms and conservative values. Kaloogian has advanced the issues important to him and the people of California as a conservative radio talk show host, noted convention speaker and documentary host. He is a frequent lecturer on topics surrounding economics and the detrimental effects of over regulation and stifling levels of taxation.
Kaloogian has received significant praise for his efforts to reduce the income tax burden facing families and small businesses in the state, including his work to develop a California Flat Tax to eliminate tax loopholes and lower the tax burden on all Californians.
