For Immediate Release
The Reform Party is planning to reemerge as a viable alternative to the incumbent parties in the 2014 election cycle. It has not had enough ballot lines to win a presidential election since it nominated Ralph Nader in 2004 or considerable funding since the 2000 election. Only recently has it put together the necessary infrastructure to move forward.
The Reform Party is growing. During their last convention they added four state parties, bringing their total up to twenty four active affiliates. They have organizers in North Carolina and several other states attempting to build active state parties.
To handle public relations and internal communications the Reform Party chartered a communications committee, chaired by Nicholas Hensley of North Carolina. The committee replaced an outdated website that dated back to the late 1990s, revamped their social networking accounts and distributed the first press releases in recent memory. It hopes to improve the party’s position through creating more original content, improving internet infrastructure and building media relations.
In the last presidential election the Reform Party was able to place its candidate on the ballot in a single state. To improve the number of ballot access lines available they’ve setup a ballot access committee headed by Dennis Mikolay of New York. It will attempt to gain enough ballot lines before the 2016 presidential election to win the Electoral College.
The Reform Party’s fundraising is based on small donations made by members. Their fundraising committee hopes to broaden their donor base and improve revenues. It was re-staffed in 2013 and is headed by party Treasurer Bill Merrell of New York.
“Small individual donors are the lifeblood of a true-grassroots political party,” said David Collison, Reform Party Chairman. “Political parties, whether they admit it or not, are beholden to their donors. Only by ensuring that party donors are individual voters, and not big-money interests, can you ensure that the party remains true to the voters and not special interests.”
The Reform Party is currently looking for candidates, organizers and leadership across the country. If you want to find out how to help or want to know more visit the Reform Party’s website at http://www.reformparty.org/ or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
