Paul C. McKain, a registered member of the Florida Whig Party, has added his name to the ballot for the 2010 Election for the 2nd Congressional District in Florida. Mr. McKain has been a resident of the state he wants to serve for over 50 years.
Paul was born in 1951 in Gauley Bridge, West Virginia. Not long after that, his family moved to Florida and he has been here ever since. Currently, Paul and his wife of 28 years, Ruth and their three children reside in the Tallahassee area. Paul enjoys all that Florida has to offer. In his spare time you can find him camping, fishing, skin diving and surfing.
Paul McKain was educated at Miami Dade Junior college, from there he went on to work at Southern Bell as a lineman and repairman for four years. Paul then took a job working for the Miami Dade Circuit Court, and while working he decided to go back to school to further his education. With the assistance of a student loan, Paul attended Florida International University where he obtained his Bachelors of Science degree with a major in education and a minor in physical science. After completing his education, Paul taught school for over three years. He then applied to join the Sunrise Florida Fire/Rescue Department (SFFRD) where he worked as a Fire Fighter and Paramedic until his retirement in 2003, 23 years later.
While off duty from his Job at SFFRD, Paul built and developed several businesses. Thanks to Paul C. McKain and his invention of a vacuum release system culminating with the passage of Federal legislation, every public pool and spa is now required to have this release system on their vacuums to prevent the possibility of loss of life, limb or other injury. This shows Paul has the common sense approach of “Find a problem, Fix a problem” and he is not afraid to do so. With the success of his vacuum release system, Mr. McKain decided to write a book in 2007 titled “Successful Failures: So You Have an Idea, Now What?” to help other aspiring inventors and businessmen succeed in their endeavors.
Paul C. McKain is now taking the “Find a Problem, Fix a Problem” to Florida's 2nd U.S. Congressional District.
