Libertarians on New York Ballot
Presidential Nominee, Bob Barr, offers real choice.
ALBANY, NY (08/26/2008; 0000)(readMedia)–
As Democrats gather in Denver to anoint their choice for President this week, Libertarians have already decided. After their own taxpayer-neutral national convention in Denver this past Memorial Day weekend,Libertarians throughout the country selected former Congressman Bob Barr from Georgia and businessman Wayne Root, a former New Yorker now in Las Vegas, as their nominees for President and Vice-President.
State Chairman Eric Sundwall says that Barr and Root will be on the ballot in New York:
“While Democrats and Republicans enjoy their coronations in the next few weeks, Libertarians are happy to know their candidates are on the ballot after weeks of grueling work, in the hottest days of the year, securing our place on the ballot.”
In addition to Barr and Root, Libertarians will field three Congressional candidates and one New York Assembly candidate. Both Steven Vasquez (www.stevenforcongress.com) and David Gay (www.davidgay2008.com) are Ron Paul endorsed candidates for New York’s 21st and 25th Congressional Districts (Albany and Syracuse respectively). Isaiah Matos (www.operation-liberty.com)is seeking the U.S. House seat in District 14 on Manhattan’s East Side and Bill Buran (www.billburan.com)will be running as a Libertarian in NY’s 72nd Assembly District in northern Manhattan.
“The Libertarian Party of New York is proud to have these freedom supporting candidates on the ballot. Without their hours of dedication, personal contributions and sacrifices, New Yorkers would be stuck with the same stale choices that have choked New York and our country far too long. We look forward to seeing these positive campaigns do well in November.“
