John Cogswell, Chairman, is a former United States Marine who has graduate from Yale University, Georgetown Law Center, and the Naval Justice School. While attending law school full-time, he also clerked for a United States Congressman full-time. John has practiced law since 1965 and has been admitted to the bars of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 10th Circuit and the District of Columbia, U.S. District Courts in Colorado, Kansas, and the District of Columbia, the U.S. Court of Military Appeals, the U.S. Tax Court, and the Supreme Courts of Colorado and Kansas. John ran for the United States Senate in 1978 and 1980.
Over the years, John has seen the steady erosion of the rights of everyday Americans at the hands of federal officials, and recommends process amendments (not policy proposals) to the Constitution initiated by the states under their Article V power because Congress, which has the most to lose if the needed changes are implemented, will never fix the system. He has proposed 44 amendments to the Constitution. Visitors can learn more and vote on John's proposals at campaignconstitution.com.
John helped found Path To Reform to equip and mobilize the states to demand an Article V Convention where these and other amendments may be considered.
