Kentucky Independent Gubernatorial Candidate Gatewood Galbraith Invited to Forum with Major Party Opponents

Ballot Access News:

Kentucky holds its gubernatorial election on November 8, 2011. So far, it appears there are no minor party candidates running in this race. However, one independent candidate, Gatewood Galbraith, is running and is already collecting signatures. Galbraith has been invited to a Kentucky Press Association forum for the gubernatorial candidates, to be held on January 21. The primary is in May, 2011, and the announced Republican gubernatorial candidates, David Williams and Phil Moffett, will also attend. Incumbent Democratic Governor Steve Beshear is also expected to run, but he has declined to appear at this event. See this story.

Galbraith was the Reform Party gubernatorial nominee in 1999, when he received 15.42% of the vote. Galbraith will need 5,000 signatures to appear on the November 2011 ballot. The signatures are due in early August.

    Hi

    It’s 2011 (as I’m sure you’re aware!) and the independent movement is getting rolling in CA!

    Wow, is 2010 going to be hard to top!

    First, we dealt a body blow to partisan politics by passing open primary Prop 14 (goodbye party control of elections!). Then we followed it up by passing Congressional Redistricting Reform Prop 20 (goodbye political gerrymandering!). Historic wins that empower voters – particularly the 3.5 million independents in CA – to have a real voice in politics.

    So what’s the plan for 2011? And what am I iniviting you to?

    Now that we have passed the reforms that give us power here in CA, we have to use it! And that takes organizing independents across the state.

    Of course, reforming California is great, but it doesn’t mean much without the fantastic work going on all over the country. Nationally, our movement – lead by our national organization IndependentVoting.Org – is involved in fights across the country to pass the same critical reforms and empower independent voters. That’s how we’re working to change politics in America.

    Thing #1 I’m inviting you to: February 12th, 2011 National Conference in New York City.

    Jackie Salit, President of IndependentVoting.Org, is hosting the conference of independents. We’ll have hundreds of folks from across the country there. The media will be there. The politicos will be watching. We’ll continue the important conversation about where we’ve come from, what we’ve accomplished, and where we’re going.

    I want you there both to project our strength and to be part of the conversation.

    IndependentVote, listed under ‘Independent’ catagory on (so called) front page ……..

    Nope, they are not listed anywhere on our site at all, and even if they were, that does not make it relevant to this article just because Galbraith is an independent candidate.

    Well, except that he could not be on the general election ballot under top two, along with other independent candidates, that is.
