Update on Jerry Carroll for President

Earlier today, I came across information abouta longtime independent candidate for President: Jerry Carroll of Stockton, California. For decades now, Jerry Carroll has dutifully submitted the forms necessary to keep his presidential campaign committee, first established in 1979, up and running. Why has he done this?

There is no Jerry Carroll for President web site with information about Carroll’s ongoing independent campaign for the White House, and so I don’t have any idea of his political agenda. Every resource that I come across online merely states that Jerry Carroll exists, and has racked up some campaign debts over the years. Then there’s that post office box address in Stockton.

I thought I had found Jerry Carroll’s phone number but, alas, it turns out to have been a phone number for another Jerry Carroll living in Stockton… or perhaps the young woman who answered the telephone and told me I “must have the wrong Jerry Carroll” just doesn’t know about Mr. Carroll’s presidential ambitions.

It looks as if it’s time for me to write a letter to that P.O. Box listed on Jerry Carroll’s FEC filings. I’ll provide another update on this quest for information when I receive a reply.

In the meantime, if you’re out there, Jerry Carroll, drop us a line and let us know more about the status of your presidential campaign.

    Hi,
    I am wondering if you ever reached Jerry Carroll. I am a documentary filmmaker and am also interested in reaching Mr. Carroll.
    Many thanks,
    Erica

  • I don’t know if you’re still interested, but I ran into Jerry Carroll today at Carl’s Jr. in Stockton. I had no idea who he was, but he sat down with me and spoke for about an hour. I’m a political scientist, so when he first started talking to me about his “perpetual” campaign for president, I perked up and started listening.

    I would gladly share lots of information for you on this guy, if you would like. Let’s just say that he’s a very “interesting” fellow. I’ll be mentioning it on my blog in a short bit here.

    Yes it’s quite interesting. I have harbored a secret desire to run for president myself, and have always wondered what it would take. The little description on your blog gives me fresh hope.

    But you don’t say anything about Carroll’s eye color, how he combs his hair, his gait… (you know, the important stuff) oh, and what he thinks of Bush and if he has heard of homeland security–if it’s not too sensitive a subject–and if he has a plan for America. Wouldn’t it be interesting if someone could convince him to blog?

    Here’s a link direct to the Carroll article rather than the home page:

    What about a ‘Unity08 meets Jerry Carroll’ episode?–nah, too much like Bambi and Godzilla.

  • I actually asked him about a web site or blog. He said he hates computers. He’s also really hard to keep focused on one subject because he’ll be in the middle of talking about how he put Clinton in office and then how he cured cancer as a doctor and then his cyborg implants. To be honest, he didn’t discuss a single “current” topic at all. It’s almost as if he’s still living in the period of time when he first put his hat into the race. I don’t have a scanner at home, but when I get a chance, I’ll stop by the university and scan the “business card” he gave me because it, too, says A LOT about him.
