Akron Businessman Creates New Political Party

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – As citizens continue to stand up against politicians, a new political party has been formed in Western New York. Tuesday, Akron businessman Jack Davis announced the formation of the Save Jobs Party.

Davis staged a tough fight for Congress last year against Republican Tom Reynolds. But since that time, Davis continues his effort to save jobs both locally and nationally. Davis says the party platform in Erie County calls for non-partisan commission to study how county services could be provided at the lowest costs, as well as replacing the county executive with a county administrator.

"We need someone who is answerable to a policy setting Legislature," Davis said. "This County needs professional management to deal with its fiscal crisis."

Davis says the party also calls for changes in pay for all county workers. The Save Jobs Party's national platform calls for an end to free trade.
