What is being said about Gary Fincher:

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

“The Libertarian Party should get down on its knees and thank you.”  – Current Libertarian Party national chairman Bill Redpath, 2004 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Gary Fincher as a petitioner is worth his weight in gold” – Professional petition coordinator Ronn Cook, 2008

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

“Gary Fincher is an excellent petitioner. Recently he worked on a petition drive to get an independent candidate on the ballot in a special congressional election in Ohio. The candidate, James Germanic, did not qualify, but he did say that Fincher’s petitions had the highest validity rate of any of his petitioners.” – Ballot access expert Richard Winger, 2008

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

“I want to see Karen [and then-husband Gary] back in the trenches doing ballot access work for the Libertarian Party” – Mary Ruwart, Author of Healing Our World, 2002

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Thanks to you and [late wife] Karen for getting us on the ballot in Maine” – Two-time LP presidential nominee Harry Browne, 1996

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

“Gary and Karen are wonderful assets to the libertarian movement” – Mark Cenci, Maine LP chair, 2000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The Finchers were the backbone of our ballot drive, collecting twice as many signatures in 4 weeks as any other petitioner, paid or volunteer.  Without them, we would not have made it on the ballot.  Because of their exemplary efforts we hope Gary and Karen Fincher will be with us when we run a candidate for governor.”  – Connecticut Ballot Drive Coordinator Courtenay Hough, 2000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“There is absolutely no dispute about Fincher’s efficiency.  None.  Not the least bit.  Fincher collected more signatures per day than any other single petitioner. He had a higher validity rate than any other large-scale petitioner.  He collected at an entirely reasonable price.  He did not propose that he would do the petitioning for us and take 30, 40 or even 60% off the top as our fundraising commission. (Those are all rates that state chairs have informed me that they were charged by other LNC petitioners.)  I should know. After all, I’m the fellow who brought him in to Massachusetts this year.”  – 2008 Libertarian presidential candidate George Phillies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“You need to get back up on that [Libertarian ballot access] horse and ride” – Scott Kohlhaas, courting a Fincher return to politics after a 2-year-long bereavement after the passing of Karen, 2004

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I wish all of Rob’s crew’s [Freedom Petition Management’s Wilkinson] signatures could all be like Gary Fincher’s signatures!” Constitution Party MA state coordinator Jim Eckland to national Constitution Party coordinator Alison Potter, 2008

 

 

“Gary is a workhorse for ballot access and for the libertarian movement.  We need him.” – Andrew Jacobs, free-lance Libertarian political consultant
