Peirce for Governor Campaign to Reach Signature Goal
Ohio Secretary of State Offices
180 Broad Street, Columbus,
11:00 a.m. Monday, May 1
The Peirce for Governor Campaign announced today that it has obtained more than 9,000 signatures and will have close to 11,000 by the filing deadline of Monday, May 1. This should be enough to ensure the 5,000 valid signatures required on a nominating petition for an independent gubernatorial candidate. Bill Peirce and his running mate Mark Noble are
running as independents because the Libertarian Party of Ohio, which endorses their candidacy, does not have ballot status.

Peirce and Noble will present the signatures to the Ohio Secretary of State, 180 Broad Street, Columbus, at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, May 1. The campaign has received support from all parts of Ohio. The signature drive has extended to all of the major cities and most of the rural areas of the state. Peirce said he was overwhelmed by the popular support for the
Libertarian principles of limited constitutional government, lower taxes, and a government that protects individual rights rather than interfering
with private lives.
Bill Peirce earned his A.B. degree from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in Economics from Princeton University. He is currently Professor Emeritus of
Economics at Case Western Reserve University, where he started teaching in 1966. He has published books about bureaucratic failure and energy
economics and has written on a wide range of public policy issues. Mark Noble left an established career in website design to return to Ohio State
University to study electronic and computer engineering.
The Peirce/Noble platform calls for reduced taxes, elimination of eminent domain abuse, elimination of property tax on houses and other buildings, and
a school choice program open to all families.
