Ralph Nader Organizing Volunteers in Maryland
On Friday, May 30, 2008, Ralph Nader, an announced presidential candidate in the ’08 election, met with volunteers in his campaign at a Dundalk, MD restaurant. The purpose of the get together was to launch a statewide effort to officially place the “Independent Party” on the ballot for the November election. Ten thousands signatures, under state law, are required to secure that objective. After a luncheon, I asked Mr. Nader, the legendary advocate for the consumers and corporate gadfly, about his ballot initiative. He shared his views on that effort and related matters. Mr. Nader underscored: “If only the people knew that they have the power!” For background, please see: votefornader.org.
