IRVINE, CA–(Marketwire – Mar 12, 2013) – Fuel Freedom Foundation, a nonpartisan, nonprofit campaign dedicated to breaking America’s oil addiction, announced today that Donald Dunn, fundraiser and political campaign strategist, has been appointed as Executive Vice President of Development. Dunn will lead the development and fundraising efforts for the foundation.
Fuel Freedom Foundation advocates for an open fuel market that will enable cheaper, cleaner, American-made replacement fuels to compete fairly with gasoline at the pump.
Dunn has been extensively involved in fundraising and political campaigns at the local, state and federal level. Prior to joining Fuel Freedom Foundation, Dunn, a Utah native, was development director for the University of Utah’s Department of Medicine. He has also served as chairman of the Utah Democratic Party and was a candidate for Congress in 2000 and 2002. Dunn served in the Clinton White House Office of Political Affairs, where he helped oversee the Southern United States. Currently, Dunn serves as a member of the Secretary of State’s Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy. Dunn graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. in political science and earned a master’s degree from the London School of Economics.
“Fuel Freedom Foundation is a perfect place for me to continue serving my community and the public. High gas prices and the repercussions of our oil addiction are far-reaching. They are killing the American economy and making the financial lives of American families more difficult,” said Dunn. “Fuel Freedom Foundation is creating change that will improve our economy and every American’s well-being in general. I am honored and excited to help change the world by taking part in a movement that offers viable solutions to our oil addiction and promotes competition, innovation and entrepreneurship in the transportation fuels market.”
Simple, inexpensive modifications to vehicles on the road today would enable cars to use replacement fuels like natural gas, methanol and ethanol. Removing regulations and commercial barriers to competition in the transportation fuels market would enable cars to be flex-fuel with minimal upgrades. By commercializing cheaper, cleaner and domestically produced replacement fuels, America would strengthen its economy, relieve families from the burden of high gas prices, secure the nation from oil-producing adversarial countries and significantly reduce harmful air toxins.
“I am pleased to welcome Donald to our team at Fuel Freedom Foundation. Our oil addiction is a nonpartisan issue threatening our way of life, our security, our economy and our health. Foreign oil drains over $330 billion a year from our economy, money that, if kept at home, could add $1 trillion to our GDP and create up to 3 million new jobs,” said Joe Cannon, CEO of Fuel Freedom Foundation.”Donald is a proven leader with over 23 years of experience successfully executing campaign and fundraising initiatives, and we fully expect the same successful results that always follow Donald and his pursuits.”
