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 was predominantly held up by the promise to ensure Ventura/McKinnney’s Presidential and Vice-Presidential nomination by the newly formed Arizona Independent-Green Party, William is currently not a supporter of Jesse anymore so this promise must be unfortunately broken, but transparently so.
William is an online radio host, comedian, martial artist, and caregiver when not directly working in the political arena.
