Drew Curtis announced his candidacy on January 23, 2015 for the upcoming election for the Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. With his wife Heather as his running mate, the platform revolves around a “Citizen Candidate” philosophy of common sense and data-driven decisions, no experiments, leaving people alone, having no party alignment, and taking special-interest money out of the political process. The stated hope is to build a blueprint for regular, real people in all 50 states/commonwealths to be able to create constructive disruptions in a broken system, in order to run competitively in elections. He will face the Republican Party nominee, businessman Matt Bevin, and the Democratic Party nominee, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, in the November 3 general election.
“That was when I realized,” said independent gubernatorial candidate Drew Curtis, “that if I didn’t run — and win — we’re all screwed.”
“Whichever party comes in will push forth the party platform, and the problem is this, it’s that neither party has all the right ideas, and they will make decisions on policy based on what their party tells them to do or what their donors tell them to do,” Curtis said.
He said he would sign into law a measure allowing the use of recreational marijuana in the state if the legislature approved it.
