John Burke

President of Trek Bicycle Corporation. Father of two. Passionate American. Concerned citizen. Fierce optimist.

Why Write This Book?

Frustrated and embarrassed by the state of politics in America, John considered running for president as an Independent in 2020, but realized he could have a greater impact by making his ideas available to everyone, separate from our broken and highly polarized presidential campaign process.

"I believe that as a nation, we are at a crossroads. One path leads to more of the same: politicians putting their party and their careers ahead of the country. The second path is the road less traveled. It is Republicans, Democrats, and Independents coming together and putting the country first and making sacrifices to solve the major problems that we face. " John Burke
