FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ANNOUNCEMENT OF ONGOING PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE “MARCH FROM GROVETON TOWARDS LANCASTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE”
After a late start, Martin moved twenty miles ahead on Thursday, biking in the rain.
Martin’s supporters are collecting trash along Route 3 which will be carried into Lancaster on Saturday.
(LANCASTER, NH)(August 26, 2011) Independent Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin will continue his “Long March” against Northern Pass and start walking on Friday morning in Groveton as long as the weather permits. The start times have been moved back to 9:30 A.M. [Ongoing details always available from Andy directly on his cell at (917) 664-9329]
“My ‘Operation Walk the Line,’ a Long March against Northern Pass, will continue Friday and Saturday,” Martin says. “All are invited to join me on foot. My march is keeping attention constantly focused on the Northern Pass dispute. I will continue to march against Northern Pass as time and resources permit.
“Thursday morning we ran a little late starting in Columbia; we were making up for our “rain day” two weeks ago when we had to suspend the march due to rain. We made it all the way to the outskirts of Groveton.
Friday morning we will start marching on foot at Groveton High School, and march through Groveton on to Lancaster. Our goal is to reach the Lancaster Fairgrounds.
Saturday we will march from the fairgrounds into Lancaster.
We will start on foot at the Fairgrounds. We are, of course, closely watching national and regional [hurricane] weather developments.”
Here is Andy’s schedule:
STARTING POINT FRIDAY: Groveton High School, 9:30 A.M.
STARTING POINT SATURDAY: Lancaster Fairgrounds (shoulder at the main entrance to the fairgrounds on Route 3, one mile north of the junction of Routes 2 & 3)
STARTING TIME: All days 9:30 A.M. (Please note change to 9:30)
GENERAL CONDITIONS OF THE MARCH AND OPPOSITION TO NORTHERN PASS:
1. This is a nonpartisan project
We always begin with the reminder that “Operation Walk The Line” is nonpartisan. Andy is, of course, a partisan candidate in the 2012 presidential primary. No secret there. But anyone who opposes Northern Pass is welcome to join the march. Republicans, Democrats, Independents, non-voters, are all invited to participate.
2. This is a locally planned project
While Andy’s presidential campaign team independently creates each segment of the Long March against Northern Pass, the ongoing planning for “Operation Walk The Line” is being done locally by opponents of Northern Pass in New Hampshire. Everyone is welcome to contribute their ideas. Let us know what you think or how you want Andy to help; he’s here to serve and support your own efforts.
By this weekend Andy will have marched on foot and biked approximately fifty (50) miles in his statewide march against Northern Pass. Martin will also attend the Moose Festival in Colebrook on Friday. Andy will hold a news conference in downtown Lancaster Saturday morning as he marches into Lancaster. The public is invited to attend any of Andy’s events.
