Alaskan Libertarian, Free Thinker, and Critical Thinker for U.S. Congress 2014
Jim McDermott: active UAF School of Management Business Instructor, a faculty advisor for entrepreneurship student led organization, currently a small business counselor, retired US Air Force, and former director of the Fairbanks Small Business Development Center. Alaskan Libertarian for US Congress 2012 & 2014.
I taught at Wayland Baptist University teaching business information system/technology related course work. Educator for Axia College teaching critical thinking skills class. Former student advisor for the University of Alaska, Anchorage working within Enrollment Services. Educational Advisor and college recruiter for DeVry University 2002-2003.
I’m a retired Senior NCO (Non Commission Officer) from the United States Air Force (USAF) after 22 years of service to my country. The lessons (theory & application) learned in leadership that I obtained while in the USAF are priceless.
My educational background consists of a B.S. in Occupational Education with an emphasis on Business Administration from Wayland Baptist University, Anchorage, AK. Additionally, I have a M.S. in Business Organizational Management with a concentration in Information Technology from the University of La Verne.
As far as my personal life goes I have a best friend & wife named Janet. We have a blended family consisting of seven children, and 15 wonderful grandchildren. I like to read books on numerous subjects but recently capitalism vs. socialism, small business, and body language topics are the most read and studied. I try to read the local News Paper daily, I play a mean game of Trivial Pursuit, and I really enjoy playing card games with my family.
As a youth I grew up in Providence R.I. and as a young adult in the U.S. Air Force I was stationed in Maryland, Guam, Germany, Arkansas, and finally here in Alaska. Alaska became my permanent home. I enjoy my relationships (professional and personal) with family, friends, clients, colleagues, students, and God.

Hi, I'm James McDermott.
On this July 4th "Independence Day" holiday weekend it is my great honor to announce my run for the US House of Representatives in the upcoming General election 2014. The opportunity to be a voice representing Alaskans in Washington DC is an exciting prospect. When elected I will represent our Alaskan independent mindset and ensure a focus on personal liberty. Alaskans, it's time to send a Libertarian to DC to represent the high-quality, self-reliant, and fiercely pro personal liberty, people of Alaska. Live free my friends.
I'm currently running for Congress because I believe I can make a difference for Alaskans, and the great country we're a part of.
Many of our citizens are not very happy with the DC gang that couldn't shoot straight. Folks I believe we do have more than two political choices. Alaskans, we are standing straight in front of you and we are the libertarians for "Personal Liberty". Live free.
The national Libertarian Party has asked me for my permission to post this current Web page picture nationally. Permission granted. Hey duopoly members; we the Libertarians, free thinkers, and critical thinkers are coming to DC soon. Live free patriots for liberty.
