Both Darcy Richardson and Steve Trager have been activists on the political left for more than two decades.

Stewart Alexander for President
With less than three weeks before the National Convention for the Socialist Party USA, Presidential Candidate Stewart Alexander announced two more picks to join his campaign in his bid to become the next President of the United States.
Today, Stewart Alexander announced that Darcy Richardson from Florida will serve as his national policy advisor, and Steve Trager from Ohio will serve as his regional campaign director. Both Darcy Richardson and Steve Trager have been activists on the political left for more than two decades.
According to Our Campaigns’ website, “Darcy Richardson is the author of six books, including five volumes of a planned-seven volume history on independent and third-party politics in the United States. A former senior specialist for a major financial brokerage firm, Richardson has more than a dozen years experience in the financial services industry and recently began working on a book about the country’s current economic crisis, tentatively titled Collapse: How the Managerial Class Plunged the Nation into the Greatest Depression.”
Steve Trager initially volunteered to work with Alexander as his Ohio campaign manager. This week, Stewart Alexander announced that Steve Trager will be his regional campaign director to generate support for his presidential campaign in the states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. Steve Trager has years of experience working with presidential campaigns and was the assistant campaign manager for Congressman Dennis Kucinich’s presidential bid in 2008. Alexander says “Trager has the energy and excitement that will help us to win in Ohio and the neighboring states.
In August, Alexander announced Billy Wharton, Co-Chair for the Socialist Party USA, as his pick for White House Chief of Staff. Recently, Wharton spoke out against raising the U.S. debt ceiling and has spoken against cutting U.S. debt on the backs of working people. Wharton has also spoken against the new congressional Super Committee that will propose recommendations that will impose deep cuts in many of the programs that provide assistance to working people. Wharton has been a national leader in defense of education and has been an out-spoken critic of U.S. military aggression.
Stewart Alexander says he would seek former U.S. Congressman Alan Grayson to step in as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Alexander says, “We need a Federal Reserve Chairman that will help steer the nation out of this depression; I want Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke out and Alan Grayson in.”
As the National Convention for the Socialist Party USA draws near, Alexander says he will seek Dan La Botz from Ohio as his U.S. Vice Presidential running mate. The SP National Convention will meet in Los Angeles, California at the Los Angeles International Airport Holiday Inn, October 14-16.
