A Man On A Mission

It's a new day, and a year of victory for the Joe Symmon campaign for Governor of California in 2010. Unstoppable dreams and fresh fire is birthed, and ultimately ignited to catapult the Golden State back to its former luster and prominence. We will stand together and do it because we have done it before and have been at the top. For such a time like this, Sacramento needs a Governor with a moral voice and integrity. Joe understands our problems and has the solutions and courage to fight for what is right. He is one of us. Joe has dedicated his entire life to changing people's lives, and now his goal is to change the lives of Californians for the better. He commenced his journey in Connecticut, Iowa and Tennessee in 1977, and California in 1983 in pursuit of education and the ability to follow the American Dream. He majored in Intercultural Studies and Theology at Life Pacific College. He performed his graduate work in Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. During his time at Fuller Theological Seminary, Joe exhibited the ability to bring people together and was elected President of the Student Body. His leadership skills and ability to organize made him a successful president and inspired him to take further steps towards making a difference in people's lives. Joe is a California resident but his charitable work has an International impact. In 2003, Joe and his wife AlyceJo founded the Child of Destiny Organization (a 501(c)3 Charity). Through this organization,

"Joe has been able to inspire hope and bring change to the lives of many orphans, giving them relief from extreme poverty and the cruel reality of life on the streets."

Joe's commitment to making a real difference in the lives of children led him to build an orphanage, elementary and high school that can house approximately 1000 kids on a 25 acre lot. In cooperation with the school and orphanage, Joe has been able to provide safe housing, sanitation, water resources, and stability to hundreds of orphans. Joe has also assisted men and women in Kenya by initiating the construction of a clinic for HIV/AIDS testing, mammogram check-ups, and a maternity ward for expecting mothers. Joe has also made a difference in the lives of countless women that are HIV positive by inspiring them to dream again. He has given these women the encouragement and determination needed to succeed in spite of their circumstances. Through his efforts, these women were provided training and an opportunity to earn a living by utilizing their skills to initiate small businesses. Aside from his philanthropic work, Joe has dedicated himself to helping those in need in the United States. Over the years Joe has fed the homeless and given hope to the impoverished in California. In his professional life, Joe has undertaken a diversity of business and church-related endeavors. His entrepreneurial skills commenced in 1977 with the starting of a realty company. He later expanded his horizons by establishing an underwriting insurance firm, where he worked as CEO until the moment he decided to pursue his charitable and mission work internationally. Joe has been happily married for 34 years to his wife AlyceJo. Together they raised three children who are now fully grown, and their family unit remains strong and unshaken. Joe believes that family is one of the top foundations in life and protecting marriages and families all over California is his number one vision, mission and priority.
