Andy Martin is in Chicago for a few days of rest after being on the presidential campaign trail for several months. He is maintaining an active campaign schedule while in Chicago and will return to New Hampshire during the week of July 25th to begin his “Long March” against Northern Pass on July 29-30.

(COLEBROOK, NH) (CHICAGO)(July 23, 2011) Corruption-fighting Independent Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin will hold a Colebrook, NH/Chicago telephone news conference Saturday, July 23rd to announce the start date for his “Long March” across the State of New Hampshire opposing the planned Northern Pass high voltage transmission system.

Because Andy’s mother was born in New Hampshire and his family’s roots in the Granite state go back 100 years, Andy is effectively New Hampshire’s “Favorite Son” in the 2012 presidential primary.

“I would like to begin this news conference, as I always do any event associated with opposition to Northern Pass, by stating this march is a nonpartisan event and all are welcome: Democrats, independents, Republicans and even non-voters,” Martin will state Saturday. “I am obviously a partisan candidate myself. There is no secret about that. But I am working on a nonpartisan basis with everyone and anyone who wants to join the movement to oppose Northern Pass.

“There is no room for partisanship when we are fighting to preserve New Hampshire’s clean air, clean water and independent way of life. This march sends a message to Washington: in New Hampshire, we can work together on a nonpartisan basis to make public policy.

“Now to the Long March. I am tickled pink to announce this event. It’s exciting. Some people were skeptical we would get under way. I never doubted we would march and march well. When I tell the national nabobs in the media my presidential campaign is the best organized in New Hampshire they pass on the matter. Well, we are organized. My opponents are not. But here’s the proof. We can organize a statewide march. No other presidential campaign can.

“Likewise, I am the only presidential candidate running TV and radio ads against Northern Pass (TV ads began in June; radio ads will start August 1st). Once again, the ability to mount a coordinated, continuous advertising campaign is a sign of good organization.

“Friday evening, July 29th we will come together to celebrate the actual start of the march on Saturday morning. All are we welcome Friday evening to come by and share our excitement.

“I am delighted to announce that New Hampshire’s #1 talk radio personality will emcee the Friday evening celebration. Stay tuned for details.

“We’re making New Hampshire First Primary history. No presidential candidate in history has ever launched a statewide march to highlight opposition to bad policy being imposed on the People of New Hampshire by powerful out-of-state interests.

“Most of my presidential campaign opponents fly in, meet with fat cats at private receptions, and fly out. As New Hampshire’s Favorite Son, I have a special duty to stand up for New Hampshire. I’m not just a waltz in-waltz out presidential troubadour. My family’s roots go back a century. I was raised with granite in my veins.

“Saturday morning, July 30th we will start the march at 9:00 A.M. at the beginning of Route 145 in Pittsburg. We are going to march all along Route 145 to Colebrook, and when we reach Colebrook we’ll celebrate again.

“Sunday morning I hope to attend local church services (church to be determined). After church, ‘Operation Walk The Line’ will resume as we march south of Colebrook to our next stop. We’ll plan the route as we go along but generally, we will stay as close as practical to the latest available Northern Pass route.

“Monday afternoon, August 1st we will hold a news conference in Concord at the LOB to report on the progress of our march.

“The march will continue in two-day segments along state highways as close to the proposed Northern Pass route as practical. We’ll try to march for two days every other week until we make it to Manchester. Our plan is to march on Saturdays and Sundays to allow maximum opportunity for working families to participate.

“There have been questions raised about whether people can use bikes. Yes. No one will be left alone, and no one will be left behind, but we will accommodate bikers as well as walkers. I’ll also bring a bike along just in case.

“So here’s the wrap-up: a gala celebration Friday evening July 29th to mark the start of the march, emcee’d by New Hampshire’s #1 talk radio personality. The actual start of the march in Pittsburg Saturday morning July 30th. More marching on Sunday July 31st. And a news conference in Concord August 1st to report to the People of New Hampshire on phase one of Operation Walk The Line [against Northern Pass].

“As I said at the beginning, all are welcome to join us. The march is nonpartisan. If you oppose Northern Pass, saddle up. Let’s send a message to the corporate boardrooms that want to dictate to ordinary citizens: The People of New Hampshire are on the march against Northern Pass.

[Note: we need a volunteer to video tape the march; please let us know if you are available. If you play an instrument, bring it along and make some music.]
