Recently the Peace and Freedom Party launched a nationwide presidential search campaign seeking candidates for President of the United States; this week Stewart A. Alexander is the first candidate to formally announce his candidacy as a Peace and Freedom Party candidate for president.

The Peace and Freedom Party is a left political party that was established in 1967; the party is ballot qualified in California and is considering obtaining ballot status in other states. The party is non-sectarian, but is specifically socialist.

The party’s platform puts forward proposals intended to benefit the needs of working class families; party activist work for peace, against racism, in defense of civil rights and liberties, for strong democratic union representation, and for the defense of the environment.

The Peace and Freedom Party has remained strongly opposed to the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and supports an immediate withdrawal of all American and Allied forces.

Stewart Alexander’s campaign to become president is broad based and comprehensive, addressing the needs of working class people in America and the world.

Alexander says, “The Democrats and Republicans, one party with two names, no longer represent America’s working class; the present one party system represents less than 5 percent of the 300 million people living in this country. Unfortunately, many Americans still believe the Democrats and Republicans are representing their best interest in Washington and the world.”

Alexander’s platform will consist of several key areas; creating programs to assist American veterans and their families, free college education for students through university level, national legislation that will meet the growing needs of seniors and the homeless, establishing universal health care, affordable housing, creating a stronger economy for working people with jobs providing good pay, hours and benefits, and developing cleaner technologies to protect the environment.

On matters of immigration, Alexander will work with other left groups and organizations to provide protection for the 12 million immigrants presently living in the United States. Alexander says, “I believe this nation should support real job opportunities for migrant workers instead of guest worker slavery programs.”

Stewart Alexander has previously run for public office, most recently he was a candidate for California Lieutenant Governor in the 2006 Mid-Term Election. In 1989 Alexander was a candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles. He was a political activist and state lobbyist working for the Florida Consumer Action Network (FCAN), and was a political activist with the Long Island Citizens Campaign in New York. Alexander is presently a member of the Peace and Freedom Party State Central Committee, he is the party’s National Membership Coordinator, and he is an officer on the Board of the PFP State Executive Committee.

Alexander says his bid to be the next president of the United States is a grassroots effort and he welcomes the support from individuals and groups across the nation. To contact Stewart Alexander, write: Stewart A. Alexander for President, 40485 Murrieta Hot Springs Road, Suite 149, Murrieta, CA 92563.
