January 11th, 2022 – The Reform Party of the United States found success in 2021. After a shakeup in 2020 in leadership that saw eighty percent of the Executive Committee turned over, the Reform Party leaders forged ahead on long awaited modernizations.
During two conventions, the Reform Party chiseled down its platform by removing many additions that never fit the Reform Party’s mold. It’s patchwork platform, added on to and expanded by people that are no longer active in the party, was turned into a comprehensive message.
“The Reform Party went back to its roots,” said Southeast Representative Richard Kasa. “We cut back everything that didn’t pertain to the Reform Party’s original mission as set forth in 1996”.
The Reform Party’s bylaws, a document created after the McKay vs Crews ruling, and never meant to carry the organization more than a couple of years, was heavily amended to allow for flexibility and growth. Many old Reform Party members were afraid of adding new members, due to the potential of yet another takeover, but a set of new rules give the Reform Party stricter and stern protections against outside aggression. The overhaul is not complete however, and another convention in May is scheduled to approve a final set of rules.
“I’m proud of the work we’ve done this year,” Northeast Representative Richard Walker praised. “We put hours of hard work into reforming the Reform Party, and it is already paying off”.
For over twenty years, the Reform Party’s work committees have sat idle. Records show that the last time the entire Reform Party apparatus was functional was around the year 2000. Working through the Reform Party network, Vice Chair of Operations Leigh Pollet found a core group of volunteers that brought these committees back to life. Not only was the Reform Party able to staff its oldest work groups, it was also able to create and staff two others.
The results were measurable. During 2021, the Reform Party of the United States raised more cash than 2016 to 2020 combined. Not only did the Reform Party double the amount of cash it had on hand, but it also increased its expenses by bringing in new technology to handle marketing, public relations and internal communications.
The Reform Party of the United States is also executing its first long term marketing campaign in recent memory. With their “Ross was Right” campaign, the Reform Party is highlighting how its party’s founder Ross Perot, and his early supporters were ahead of their time. In creating a new set of graphs and charts based on their original founding issues, the Reform Party is highlighting how each of their original issues still exist, and how the long-term future of the United States is eroding due to inaction on these issues.
“As our position improved, the position of the Democratic and Republican Parties eroded,” stated Reform Party Chairman Nicholas Hensley in a recent letter to the members, “Forty four percent of Americans identify as independents, and the Democrats and Republicans both hold twenty nine percent of the voting demographic. For the establishment parties, this is an all time low.
Now that the major parties are floundering, it is time for another political party to take lead. The Reform Party must take advantage of this weakness, and our leadership is ready to move not left, not right, but forward. We ask that you follow”.
With this marketing campaign, the Reform Party is hoping to win races for office around the country, and break the Republican and Democrats’ stranglehold on American Politics.
The Reform Party is a moderate, centrist party founded in 1996 by the supporters of Ross Perot. The Reform Party advocates for a moderate platform centered around common sense, moderate solutions for today’s political issues. It is funded by small donors and has never taken money from political action committees (PACs). It is possible to find out more about the Reform Party, or donate a small amount, by visiting www.reformparty.org. The Reform Party is always looking for volunteers and candidates for office.
