Chris Edes to seek nomination for Governor as a Libertarian
Rochester, NY — Chris Edes, a Rochester native and Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate in 2012, is seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination for Governor this year.
The Libertarian Party of New York selects its nominees at its State Convention this Saturday, April 26. The gubernatorial nominee will likely be chosen in the late afternoon or evening. There are four other persons seeking the nomination, in what promises to be an interesting contest.
“I believe we can forge a consensus on fiscal policy,” said Edes. “Democrats and Republicans alike support tax breaks for banks and businesses. I propose instead a tax cut for the individual and the consumer. It’s past time for the little guy to catch a break.”
Edes also plans to “bring New York into the 21st Century by adopting a ‘shall issue’ permit system for handguns.”
Chris is widely assumed to be in the running, but had not yet issued a formal press advisory. He has a website at www.vote-for-chris.net
