CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JIM FOR SENATE >>
A Fortune 500 executive with more than 30 years’ experience in the engineering and construction of large-scale power plants, Jim Lamon is the Founder and Chairman of DEPCOM Power, headquartered in Arizona.
Responsible for creating 1,600 jobs across the country, DEPCOM is one of the fastest-growing solar power companies in the U.S. and was ranked the fifth fastest-growing private company in the U.S. by Inc. 5000 in 2018. DEPCOM’s corporate practices reflect Jim’s deep commitment to serving the community, honoring the sacrifices of veterans, and supporting American workers.
Under Jim’s leadership, DEPCOM donates ten percent (10%) of its net income to charities across our country, $7 million to date and growing to help Arizona’s and America’s less fortunate. Twenty percent (20%) of DEPCOM’s staff served in the United States Military, four times the national average of those who have served.
Jim is a veteran himself, having served six years as an Army Officer, with three of those in Germany during the Cold War, where he saw the stark difference between American freedom and Communist oppression.
Jim’s company is the industry leader in pursuing a “Made in America” policy, with seventy percent (70%) of company dollars spent staying in America. In its first eight years, DEPCOM has spent more than $3 billion on American steel, electrical cable, and construction workers.
He will insist that jobs go to American citizens, by working to secure our borders, require E-Verify and deport illegal immigrants that endanger our communities. Jim will be a strong voice for a more streamlined federal government that spends less, has fewer regulations, and is mission-focused on delivering core essentials to the American taxpayer. Put America First, Secure the Border, Streamline the Federal Government: that is the Jim Lamon Plan.
Prior to founding DEPCOM, Jim worked for 20 years in the coal and gas-fired power plant industry. Jim knows what it takes to power America.
As a candidate for the United States Senate from the great State of Arizona, Jim Lamon is dedicated to putting America First, just as he has done as a business leader. He will take on China, fight back against rampant theft of technology, and work to level the playing field for our American manufacturers and workers. Jim will work to stop endless wars and deployments and refocus our military mission on China as our predominate adversary.
Growing up on a farm, Jim learned to work hard and value Faith, Family, and Country. Jim’s first paying job was shoveling manure at age 7, at $0.25 per stall. That experience has left him well-prepared to clean up Washington. He learned teamwork and dedication when he played football for the legendary coach Bear Bryant. Jim followed in the footsteps of his father, who was a construction engineer and a Command Sergeant Major in the United States Army Reserve. His mother ran the home while also working part-time.
Today, Jim is the father of two grown children and proud grandfather of two grandchildren. He is active in his Christian faith and philanthropy. He enjoys weight training, hiking and yoga.
Jim Lamon is not the candidate of special interests, and definitely not the favorite of Communist China. When elected to the Senate, Jim will only answer to the voters of Arizona. He will work for us, putting the taxpayer first. Jim will support balanced budgets, term limits, and spending reforms. He will fight to defend our constitutional rights, including the right to bear arms. He will donate his entire salary and unlike many lawmakers out to enrich themselves, he will not accept a government pension.
