Founded in 1995, the Reform Party is a federally recognized political party composed of former Independents, Democrats and Republicans. It is a mainstream party based around principles for ethics reform and moderate economic and fiscal platforms. It is unique in the way of social issues, as it takes no stance on issues like abortion or gay marriage.
The Reform Party is an all-volunteer organization funded primarily by small donations from individuals members. It takes no money from political action committees or other special interest groups, and seeks to ban special interest funds from political campaigns.
The party seeks to be a viable alternative the Democrats and Republicans. It has been moderately successful. Several of its members hold office, and the highest ranking minor officeholder in recent memory was elected governor on a Reform Party ballot line. It is constantly seeking new candidates for national, state and local offices.
The Reform Party is growing. Compared to the 2008 election, the party doubled the number of votes it received in the recent presidential election and gained votes in fifteen additional states. During the 2012 National Convention the party gained four state affiliates, and last year gained a seat on a local utilities board.
The best is yet to come. The Reform Party has made a major overhaul to its organization. For the first time in recent history it has operational communications, fundraising and ballot access committees. These committees are building the infrastructure necessary for the party to reemerge in the 2014 elections.
The party is always looking for new officers, organizers and candidates. If you are interest in helping email us at email@example.com
