John Thomas Financial CEO Thomas Belesis Appears Live on Fox Business From the Second Presidential Debate

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) - John Thomas Financial CEO Thomas Belesis appeared on Fox Business News live from the second Presidential Debate at Hofstra University in Long Island, New York on October 16, 2012. Belesis, who served as a delegate at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL in August, appeared as a featured guest of Fox Business anchor and contributor Neil Cavuto.

Belesis spoke confidently about Romney's performance at the debate. "He laid out his five-point plan. It was descriptive, it was detailed, it was precise," Belesis asserted. 

Speaking about the last four years, Belesis pointed out the failures of the Obama Administration. "The facts are the facts," he said. "Gas prices are $4 a gallon -- and that's terrible -- and that's not what America needs right now. We need lower gas prices, we need people to go back to work and we need entrepreneurs to get out there and take the risk."

Thomas Belesis is an active member and supporter of the Republican Party. A successful finance executive, he serves as Co-Chairman of the New York State Republican Finance Committee and is a strong support of Gov. Romney.

Earlier this year, he received the Chairman's Honor Roll Recognition from the New York State Republican Committee for his "steadfast commitment to the principles of the Republican Party and selfless support for Republican ideals."

In 2009, Mr. Belesis was named "Bronx GOP Man of the Year" by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and in 2011 the Businessman of the Year Award from the New York Republican County Committee.

Belesis serves as Vice President and Chairman of the Board of the Global Millennium Development Foundation (GMDF). He also regularly collaborates with world leaders on global energy and sustainability issues as a member of the Board of Trustees of the New York Institute of Energy and Water and an Executive Board Member of the World Energy Forum.
