FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Contact: Boston Tea Party - 574-226-3210 or Powell Gammill 602-400-6463
Phoenix, Arizona - Libertarian Congressional candidate Powell
Gammill submitted forms to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office
today to qualify Boston Tea Party candidate Charles Jay as a write-in
candidate for President of the United States.
"The fact that we were able to pull this effort off in two days
speaks volumes of how people are disgusted with the Republican,
Democrat and even Libertarian candidates for President and it is
obvious people want more choices as to whom to cast votes for President
on November 4th," Gammill said. "I extend my heartfelt thanks to
everyone who helped make this possible.
After attending the U.S. Libertarian Party convention in Denver in
May, Gammill decided on Tuesday, September 23rd to conduct a campaign
to assist Boston Tea Party candidate Charles Jay to be a write-in
option for President of the United States.
Gammill was able to enlist the support of former Arizona
Libertarian Gubernatorial candidate (favorite son) Barry Hess whom will appear as
Charles Jay's running mate for the Vice Presidency.
As per their website, the Boston Tea Party (B.T.P.) and both its
nominees support "reducing the size, scope and power of government at
all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope
and power of government at any level, for any purpose".
Charles Jay, who resides in south Florida, has years of experience
in media and marketing and was also on the ballot in Utah on Personal
Choice Party's ticket for President in 2004.
"What Charles Jay and the Boston Tea Party stand for is reflective
of what I passionately believe in," Gammill said. "it is unfortunate
that none of the Presidential candidates, even Libertarian candidate
Bob Barr, are consistent in their belief in minimizing the role of
government and maximizing individual rights."
On November 4th, Arizona voters who adhere to a libertarian vision
for America will have the ability to cast votes for those principles by
writing in Charles Jay and Barry Hess on November 4th.
