Message From the Chairman

See You in Salt Lake City!

1 April 2016
Frank Fluckiger, National Chairman

It all comes down to this.

The Constitution Party does a lot of things. We define what we stand for using the Constitution as our yardstick of measure and the writings of the Founding Fathers as a specific guide. From there we seek out and help organize state affiliates to establish a structure from which we can do the business of entering the political arena. That business requires the party to run as a business: government regulations require detailed reports, we must have an office for phones, shipping materials, and more.

The vital work of gathering signatures on petitions for ballot access which allows our candidates to take our message to voters is vital. It’s the very core of what we can do to call Patriots to action. The Constitution Party would only exist on paper if we did not have a platform from which our candidates take a stand that voters can see. Developing public relations materials is essential so the voters know who we are, and can be used in voter registration drives.  Visit the Ballot Access page on our website to check on our progress.

All that comes down to this: we nominate a presidential ticket to enter the general election every four years.  It’s an exciting process which requires delegates to decide who will be our presidential nominee at the National Nominating Convention.

Our 2016 convention is set for Salt Lake City from April 13-16. The Early Bird registration of $275, has now been extended until April 8, and includes three lunches, a Friday reception, and a banquet on Saturday. The exciting agenda and speakers can be found in this month’s edition of the American Constitutionist.  For questions about registrations, please call Joan Castle at 901-481-5441.

All of what we do as a political party, from defining where we stand, establishing a structure, ensuring there are state affiliates, and coordinating ballot access for our candidates comes to fruition at the National Nominating Convention. Our most dedicated members and a number of other Patriots will be there. If you cannot be part of the this historic event, I urge you to take an ad out in our program with an ad out in our program promoting you products or services, or sending best wishes to our candidates.

I look forward to working with you in Salt Lake City. Please keep the Constitution Party and our 2016 presidential ticket in your prayers.
