Davenport, Iowa (April 2, 2010) - A non-partisan organization called GOOOH (pronounced "go" and stands for Get Out Of Our House) seeks to restore popular sovereignty to the people by replacing the career politicians (and all the special interests that come with them) who have taken over the People's House, the United States House of Representatives. Many groups threaten to "throw the bums out" or "get rid of all of 'em," but very few have a non-partisan approach let alone a functioning process that ensures a candidate will be representative of their own district and not out of state special interests.
GOOOH is the non-partisan process that has been in development nationally since 2007 and has the potential to turn the duopoly two party election facade on its head. Everyday Americans choose their district's GOOOH candidate, not special interest money and national party influence. A candidate that emerges from the GOOOH process will not accept special interest money and will be bound by a legal contract with the constituency to vote how they voted during the GOOOH process. This innovative approach to engaging the electorate has been showcased in national and regional media such as The Dennis Miller Show, Lou Dobbs, The Steve Deace Show on WHO, Mornings with Andy Peterson on WMT, Today in Iowa on KWWL, WGN Midday News, Fox and Friends, The 700 Club, MSNBC and many other local television stations.
The nationwide effort to develop and promote GOOOH candidates is fully explained at www.GOOOH.com.
The public is invited to attend a Test Drive of the GOOOH Process on Tuesday, April 6th. Training will be provided to each attendee so that he or she may host or help host a GOOOH Test Drive House Party in their neighborhood on Friday April 16th. The goal is to have over 1800 people test driving the GOOOH candidate selection process in April. The Test Drive, which can last up to two hours, has been described as part Trivia Night, part Speed Dating and part non partisan politicking. In May the GOOOH process will formally begin in Iowa, with a GOOOH candidate vetted by the people of the respective districts in time to join the ballot by petition in August. A nationwide branding campaign for GOOOH candidates across America is planned by the GOOOH founders.
The first Test Drive on April 6th, open to all ages, will start at 2:00 pm and the second Test Drive, adults 18+, will begin at 7:00 pm.
Both sessions will be led by Jamie Raney, the state leader of GOOOH in Iowa.
The Test Drive's are happening in downtown Davenport, inside the QC Freight House at Penguin's Comedy Club an ideal locaiton for conversation and fun.
Free parking is available.
The event is free to the public, with food and drink available for purchase on site.
Media inquires are welcome. Advance copies of the GOOOH Test Drive materials are available upon request.
Onsite remotes feasible.
Jamie Raney, State of Iowa GOOOH Leader?
