OnAir Post: Neal Dunn – FL 02

Republican members of Congress and state governors were appalled by news Thursday that President Joe Biden will force employers with more than 100 workers to require coronavirus vaccinations or test employees weekly, vowing to block the new policy and terming it unconstitutional.

The mandate, which is expected to affect as many as 100 million Americans in an array of jobs, including health care, directly impacts the private sector.

“This is absolutely unconstitutional,” Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky, wrote in a tweet, attaching a link to the news.

“Mandates are not the answer,” Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., said in response. “Getting the vaccine should be up to you and your doctor — not the federal government.”

About

Neal Dunn 1

Source: Campaign page

eal’s entire life has centered on service to his country and his community, a quality he learned from his parents. He is also a lifelong Republican. Growing up, Neal was a strong student and an Eagle Scout along with his twin brother Alan. Neal attended Washington & Lee University where he was honored as a Distinguished Military Graduate. He then attended George Washington University Medical School and completed his residency training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Following his graduation from medical school, Neal followed his father’s footsteps and served his country in the United States Army for over ten years.

In 1990, after his service in many places here and abroad,  Neal and his wife Leah transitioned from Army life and decided that North Florida was the best place to live in America. He began his Urology practice in Panama City and has been a leader in the medical and business community since the time he arrived. He founded Panama City Urology Center, Bay Regional Cancer Center and the Advanced Urology Institute, so he knows firsthand the health care issues that affect our communities.

He has served as President of his County Medical Society, Chief of Staff of Gulf Coast Medical Center and a Director of Bay Medical Center Sacred Heart. In his 35 years as a surgeon, Neal received numerous awards, including being named among America’s Top Physicians and America’s Top Surgeons and to the Junior Achievement Hall of Fame. He is proudest of being named Bay County’s Public Health Hero by the Florida Department of Health in 2014 for his service to the community.

Over the years, Neal has been active in several charities, but nearest to his heart is the Bay Cares program, which he chairs, a charity that provides free specialty care to the working poor, with an operational overhead of less than 0.5%. This critical care provides surgery, chemotherapy and other life-saving treatments to those who cannot otherwise afford it.

In addition to Bay Cares, Neal and Leah have both been involved in numerous community groups, including the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Prostate Cancer Foundation, Bay Health Foundation, Relay for Life, Movember Foundation (men’s health), AMVETS, Bay Education Foundation, Florida State University Panama City, Gulf Coast State College, the Science and Discovery Center, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts of America, numerous School PTAs, athletic and academic teams. For many years, Neal organized free physicals for Bay County students and scouts.

In 2008, Neal worked with community leaders to open Summit Bank, a local community bank that provides banking services to small businesses in North Florida. Summit Bank was recently named the 25th healthiest bank in the United States. In 2014, Neal was appointed to the Boards of Enterprise Florida and Space Florida, both of which are economic development organizations focused on growing jobs and building the economy in Florida.

Neal and Leah’s families both have a long tradition of military service and this was the common bond that brought them together. They have been married for over 30 years and have 3 sons, Alex, Patrick, and David and 3 wonderful grandsons. Christian values were the foundation of young Neal’s family life growing up where he was blessed to be born into a family where serving God, country and a fellow man was expected.  Neal lives these values and is proud to pass on these foundations for life to his children and grandchildren.

Wikipedia Entry

Neal Patrick Dunn (born February 16, 1953) is an American surgeon and Republican Party politician serving as the U.S. representative for Florida’s 2nd congressional district since 2017.

Early life and career

Dunn was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 16, 1953.[1][2] He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in interdisciplinary sciences from Washington and Lee University and a Doctor of Medicine from the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences. He completed his medical internship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dunn served in the United States Army for 11 years of active duty, reaching the rank of major.[3] He then settled in Panama City, Florida, where he helped found the Panama City Urological Center, the Panama City Surgery Center, and was the founding chairman of Summit Bank.[4]

U.S. House of Representatives

Elections

2016

In August 2015, Dunn announced his candidacy for the United States House of Representatives for Florida’s 2nd congressional district in the 2016 elections. The district’s one-term incumbent, Democrat Gwen Graham, opted to retire after court-ordered redistricting made the district heavily Republican.[4][5][6] He won the Republican nomination, narrowly defeating attorneys Mary Thomas and Ken Sukhia,[7] and defeated Walter Dartland in the general election.[8] He was sworn in on January 3, 2017.[9]

Dunn’s chief of staff, Brian Schubert, resigned in February 2018 after the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into alleged sexual harassment by Schubert and Pat Meehan.[10]

Dunn has held multiple virtual town hall meetings since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020. He has told media outlets that he doesn’t believe town halls are a productive format for engaging constituents.[11] Constituents have voiced frustration with Dunn for his refusal to host town halls.[12]

2018

In 2018, Dunn won reelection against challenger Bob Rackleff, 67.4% to 32.6%.[13]

2020

Dunn has held multiple virtual town hall meetings since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020. He has told media outlets that he doesn’t believe town halls are a productive format for engaging constituents.[11] Constituents have voiced frustration with Dunn for his refusal to host town halls.[12] Despite this he was relected with 97% of the vote in 2020.

Committee assignments

Caucus memberships

Political positions

Dunn’s campaign website identifies him as conservative.

Gun policy

Dunn received an “AQ” rating from the NRA during his 2016 run for office—the highest rating possible for a non-incumbent.[15] He does not support a ban of semi-automatic weapons.[16] From 2015 to 2016, Dunn accepted $1,000 from the NRA‘s Political Victory Fund.[17]

Net neutrality

Along with 107 Republican members of Congress, Dunn sent Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai a letter on December 13, 2017, supporting his plan to repeal net neutrality protections ahead of the commission’s vote.[18] Dunn accepted $18,500 from the telecom industry before voting to repeal the rule.[19]

Tax reform

Dunn voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017,[20] calling the bill “good medicine for America”.[21] He believes it will benefit many generations of Americans with a “great economy in which there will be jobs, there will be opportunity, there’s possibilities for literally a whole new generation or two of Americans”. Dunn says he has received support from “mostly small businessmen” in his district for supporting the bill.[22]

Education

Dunn wants to defund the Department of Education.[23]

Healthcare

Dunn supports repealing the Affordable Care Act, which he says is “failing”, saying “no one can afford” the premiums and deductibles.[24]

2020 presidential election certification

In December 2020, Dunn was one of 126 Republican members of the House of Representatives to sign an amicus brief in support of Texas v. Pennsylvania, a lawsuit filed at the United States Supreme Court contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election, in which Joe Biden defeated[25] incumbent Donald Trump. The Supreme Court declined to hear the case on the basis that Texas lacked standing under Article III of the Constitution to challenge the results of an election held by another state.[26][27][28]

After the 2021 storming of the Capitol, Dunn condemned the rioters, but still voted to object to the certification of several states’ electoral votes.[29][30]

Personal life

Dunn and his wife, Leah, have three sons and three grandsons.[6] On April 9, 2020, Dunn’s office announced that he tested positive for COVID-19.[31]

Issues

Democracy & Governance

Cut Spending and Balance the Budget Now
More than ever, Washington needs to tighten its belt and rein in wasteful spending. We can’t afford to pass trillions in debt to our children and grandchildren.

Economy & Jobs

Create Jobs and Expand the Economy
The backbone of our economy is built by small businesses. With small business comes jobs, and with jobs comes a stronger economy. As a small business owner, I know firsthand how difficult it is to wade through excessive government regulation. We need to lower tax rates and reduce government regulations on these important job-creators to keep America competitive in a global market.

Health & Education

Reform Healthcare
We need a free-market health care system that gives consumers more choices and does not come between patients and their doctors.

Stop Woke Indoctrination
The radical Left is determined to indoctrinate young Americans. We need to stop the Federal Government’s takeover of our education system and let parents decide what’s best for their children.

Human Rights

Protect the Second Amendment
The ‘Right to Bear Arms’ is one of the most fundamental and important rights in the Constitution and needs to be protected. As a life member of the NRA and a Veteran, I cherish this right and will fight to protect and uphold the 2nd Amendment.

Fighting for the Sanctity of Life
I am 100% pro-life and will fight for the rights of the unborn. We must stop taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

Protect Our Values
Traditional family values are under attack from the Biden administration, liberals, secularists, and unelected judges. The faith community must not retreat in the fight for the heart and soul of America.

Public Safety

Stand Up for Veterans & Support the Military
As a Veteran of the U.S. Army, I will be a strong voice for our men and women who wear the uniform during and after their service. I will help veterans with housing and health care issues and support mental health policies that help our heroes and their families after they get back.

Fight Radical Islamic Terrorism
Terrorism must be confronted and defeated. We need to put a strategy in place to take the fight to them in the Middle East and redouble our efforts to secure our nation.

Stop Illegal Immigration
For the last few decades, politicians have debated the problem of illegal immigrants, yet our borders remain vulnerable. We must immediately secure the border, enforce the laws we currently have, stop amnesty for illegals, and outlaw sanctuary cities.
