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.
