John CarusoA lifelong Democrat, from a family of Democrats. My active political career started in the late 1960s. I participated in various organizations in college, Students for a Democratic Society, among others. Participated in Civil rights marches and demonstrations. I must admit that my professional career intervened, and I did not participate in the Democratic Party (except for voting and contributing funds) until recently, however, I have been a forever member of the Sierra Club and various other organizations. About ten years ago, I became much more active in the local Duval County Sierra club and several similar organizations. I was also a founding member of the Jacksonville Reef Research team, dedicated to preserving marine habitat.  I am married to Susie, a wonderful woman and activist in her own right, who famously was almost arrested for protecting trees from destruction. Environmental issues, feeding the hungry and human rights are something I ha

Environmental issues, feeding the hungry and human rights are something I have fought for and advocated my whole life.

Professional Career:  Started my Career working for a small regional bank and then at HSBC Bank as an accounting manager and eventually Senior Systems Planner. Left to start my own software development company for the next 13 years, eventually licensing software to AT&T.   After this, I wanted to give back to the community, and I taught various Computer Science subjects in high school for a few years, then worked as a consultant for several clients, the largest being the Jacksonville Electric Authority, where I designed and implemented a wireless meter reading data collection system. My career ended with a stint at Voya Financial, where I was Director of Software Development for a major business segment.

In the last year, I became much more active in Flagler County, and am currently a Precinct Leader for Precinct 29, and represent the Flagler Democratic Executive Committee at the state level as State Committeeman. Looking forward to making a difference.
