Statement from the Hon. David M. Walker regarding the Draft Dave Walker for President movement
Former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker today released the following statement:
“Reports in the media have mentioned an effort to draft me as a candidate for President through the Americans Elect (AE) process, and I want to clarify my position. I am aware of this recent independent movement to draft me, which is an initiative by people who evidently share my views regarding the need for fiscal, political and other major reforms to keep America great. Importantly, their effort is unrelated to the Comeback America Initiative (CAI), No Labels, and AE organizations.
“While I appreciate and am humbled by their efforts, I am not a candidate and don’t expect to become one. Rather, I am focused on my many responsibilities, including serving as CEO of the non-partisan CAI, as a national co-founder of No Labels, and as a member of AE’s Board of Advisors.”
Mr. Walker is CEO of the Comeback America Initiative, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote fiscal responsibility and sustainability by engaging the public and assisting key policymakers on a non-partisan basis in order to achieve solutions to America’s fiscal imbalances.
As part of his national campaign to educate Americans about important fiscal issues, Mr. Walker this week posted a video about two key fairness issues that are being ignored in the tax debate: fairness within income brackets, and intergenerational fairness. The tax video is the latest in CAI’s Myth of the Month series. You can view the Myth videos here: http://keepingamericagreat.org/educate-yourself/learn-the-facts/myth-of-the-month/
