We are excited to share that Dennis A. Ross, retired U.S. Congressman and director of our American Center for Public Leadership (ACPL), has published his autobiography, “Reaching Across the Aisle: Reflections on My Experiences in Politics.”

About the Book

Ross shares his journey into politics, from running his future wife’s campaign for class president in high school to being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for four consecutive terms. 

He also discusses his observations on the political divide and offers solutions based on his experiences working with members of differing parties. Ross shares his unique experiences in politics, including flying on Air Force One with former President Donald J. Trump.

Ross’s Background

Ross was born and raised in Lakeland, Florida. He graduated with a B.A. from Auburn University and received his J.D. from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. 

Ross was elected to Congress in 2010, where he represented Florida’s 12th and 15th District for a total of eight years. He retired from Congress in 2019 and then became a distinguished professor of political science at SEU and the director of the ACPL. 

Ross and his wife, Cindy, have two adult sons and two grandchildren.
