Reform Party Candidate Carl Person Gains Ballot Access
Carl Person is a self-employed attorney that founded his own firm. He has run for office twice before on the Libertarian ticket. His most recent run for office was in 2012 when he ran in the Libertarian primary for president. In 2010, Carl ran for state Attorney General and finished with 36,000 votes.
He advocates for free, one year, optional IT training for every high school senior and adult. There has been a shortage in IT workers across the nation, and creating such a program to train them, he expects would create a half million jobs in New York City.
Mr. Person proposes plans to help homeowners fight foreclosures, and allow homeowners to defer real-estate taxes to help them modify their loans. He also wants the public transit system to be free, which would save New York residents an estimated average of one thousand dollars per year.
The Reform Party has been working towards making a comeback in recent years. The New York affiliate is one of the stronger and more active affiliates in country. Members hope that a win in this race will allow the party to reemerge as a viable alternative to the Democrats and Republicans.
Carl Person’s Mayoral race is the largest campaign the Reform Party is involved in this year. The Reform Party is also involved in a Charlotte City council race, and is backing William Drummond II in Florida’s Second Congressional District in the 2014 elections.
