Gineen Bresso, a former presidential appointee and elections attorney, announced her candidacy to represent Florida’s 20th Congressional District. Bresso, 39, is challenging incumbent Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
“I am prepared to work to restore fiscal responsibility, remove barriers to economic growth, and take the voice of the people to Washington D.C.,” said Bresso. Currently, the nation is facing significant troubles with a debt in excess of $15 trillion and a staggering $1.1 trillion deficit. “It’s time to govern responsibly and lead the nation to a more prosperous future,” continued Bresso.
Bresso was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S Senate on October 2, 2008 to serve on the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). Ms. Bresso served as Chair of the EAC in 2009 and recently resigned her post after asking President Obama to withdraw his nomination of her to serve a second term.
Before her appointment to the EAC, Bresso served as the Director of Legislative Operations and Counsel for the Committee on House Administration in the U.S Congress. Previously, she served as a policy advisor to former Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., and worked as an attorney-advisor for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, where she reviewed and processed applications for federal trademark registration. She also served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Arrie W. Davis, in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.
Ms. Bresso received her Juris Doctor from Western New England College School of Law in 1999. In 1995, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
