William Pounds - Candidate Statement
In the year 2020, William Pounds served as a Co-Chair on the presidential exploratory committee for former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura and then he served as a Vice-Presidential Campaign Director appointed by Nominational VP Candidate, former U.S. Representative Cynthia McKinney. William campaigned for Alaskan Green primary votes and persuaded Alaska’s Green Party to break away from the National Green Party’s 2020 Presidential Nominee, to instead nominate a more experienced Green ticket in Jesse Ventura and Cynthia McKinney. For Jesse Ventura it was a draft-nomination but Cynthia McKinney did accept the nomination from the Alaska Green Party.
William’s platform is predominantly held up by the promise to ensure Ventura/McKinnney’s Presidential and Vice-Presidential nomination by the newly formed Arizona Independent-Green Party. Pounds for Arizona will employ petition circulators in Arizona due to the financial support of Jesse Ventura supporters nationwide with the knowledge that their campaign contributions will be used to fund the labor needed to nominate William’s name for Arizona Governor, have the Independent-Green Party of Arizona be recognized by the state, and ensure Jesse Ventura an Arizona presidential nomination in the 2024 election cycle.
William is an online radio host, comedian, martial artist, and caregiver when not directly working in the political arena.
