Albany, NY, August 17, 2010 — Warren Redlich filed 34,000 signatures at 10:00 am this morning as the Libertarian candidate for Governor. He credited a "tremendous group of volunteers" for their efforts in organizing and conducting the petition drive, as well as the LPNY leadership and the Libertarian National Committee for their support and hard work.
Redlich praised the volunteers: "My mother was out there getting signatures; my father-in-law, too. Hundreds of people helped. And we had a dedicated team who spent the past week putting it all together." Looking forward, Redlich said he would continue delivering his "Stop Wasting Money" message to the voters. "I'm the only candidate who tells people where spending will be cut," he explained. "If you're going to cut, that means people lose their jobs. Andrew Cuomo, Rick Lazio and Carl Paladino are afraid to say who gets fired." Redlich's proposed cuts include capping bureaucrat pay at $100,000 a year, eliminating spending on corporate welfare (a/k/a economic development), and eliminating specific state agencies such as NYSERDA. "If we want to protect our teachers and our parks, we have to cut somewhere else," Redlich noted. Redlich stated, “With 3719 pages, the Libertarian slate filed over 500 pages more than Carl Paladino's Taxpayers Party petitions, and nearly 1500 pages more than the Paladino-funded Anti-Prohibition Party candidate Kristin Davis.” The statewide Libertarian slate includes: Governor: Warren Redlich Lt. Governor: Alden Link Attorney General: Carl E.
