The Reform Party of the United States is a grassroots organization founded in 1995 as a centrist alternative to the Democratic and Republican Parties. The party was founded on principles for governing that included holding elected official accountable, maintaining a balanced budget, stopping the passage of free trade agreements, and improving government transparency.
The Reform Party is a minor political party founded in 1995. It is a centrist party, seeking to be a viable alternative to the Democrat and Republican Parties for every in-between who are currently unrepresented. Currently it is seeking moderate minded candidates to run for local and state offices for the 2013 cycle.
Over the past decade, the party has pulled itself together. The Reform Party has twenty four active affiliates, four of which were added to the organization during the 2012 convention. The position of the party was strengthened when Kevin Kennedy on the board of Belleville, NJ became publicly affiliated and Bob Acker won a seat on a local utilities board in Colorado.
The Reform Party issues about three press releases per month. If you're a reporter looking for information for a story,a blogger wanting information for a post, or want to keep up on current events, this section is for you.
