Over twenty years as a contract Machine Draftsman for the machine tool industry in the Cincinnati area. 1976 to 1998.

 1982 to Present: Moderate Political Activist and Writer. Began in 1982, as a member of Fathers for Equal Rights, to work for shared parenting legislation in Ohio. Legislation passed around 1986. Still moderate! Still active!

 Campaign Worker, Perot for President 1992

 Founding Member, United We Stand America, 1993 to 1995; Petition Drive to form The Reform Party of Ohio, 1995; Campaign worker, Perot/Choate, 1996 Reform Party Presidential Campaign.


1996 to Present: Political Web Page Developer; see FREE POPULIST POLITICAL TOOLS; free template web pages and campaign materials for the nonpartisan independent political movement. I am one part Nerd & Geek.

 Delegate: Reform Party National Conventions, 1997 Kansas City, Missouri; 1998 Atlanta, Georgia; 1999 Dearborn, Michigan; & 2000 Long Beach, California. Delegate to the 2000 Natural Law Party/Reform Party Coalition National Convention, Washington D.C.

 Elected Office: Central Committee, The Reform Party of Ohio, 1998 to 2000

 2000 Natural Law Party Candidate for U.S. Congress: "If not me, who, if not now, when?" I had never thought about standing for public office before December 1999. I could not remain uninvolved while my Ohio District One congressional ballot had only a Democratic candidate and a six year incumbent Republican candidate on the ballot, which would have given the voters of District One no choice but candidates from the corrupt two-party monopoly. My name was on every OH1 ballot in November 2000. Same Issues in 2000 I was on the ballot along with a Libertarian Party candidate.  (Top of Page)

 2002 and 2004: Developing Congressional Campaign materials and web pages for Citizens for Stevenson. Failed to get 1,168 valid signatures for 2002. More signatures are needed in 2004; 1695 signatures by March 1, 2004. Will pay my $85 to be on the ballot as a write-in. Some thought was given to filing suit to extend the time to file signatures  in Ohio for independent Congressional candidates. Legal precedent would be set for independent Congressional candidates to have until August (same as President) to get valid signatures.  More time would get many more nonpartisan candidates on the Ohio ballot so the nonpartisan 80% voter majority would have candidates on the ballot to represent their public policy interests. The people would have ballot access, real ballot access.

 2006 and 2008: Decided to stand for Congress in 2006 just one week after election day, November 2, 2004. We failed to get on the 2006 ballot, not even as a write-in. There was not any opposition candidate in 2006. The 2008 petitions deadline was in March again, March 2008. No petition campaign was possible with that early deadline, so Rich was a write-in again, not shown on the ballot. We did have a 2008 opposition independent candidate to vote for to replace 14 year career incumbent Steve Chabot. Chabot was finally defeated but only by the career Democratic incumbent. Anti-incumbent campaign speeches by Rich and the Libertarian candidate helped to defeat a 14 year career incumbent, but unfortunately only with an 8 year Democratic career incumbent. A minor victory!

 2010: I started to edit the campaign materials and web pages for the 2010 campaign in Fall 2008. I had almost decided to not continue to campaign in 2008 and was unsure if I wanted to campaign in 2010 unless there was considerable support and a campaign manager in place by the Fall of 2009.   I would have loved to file suit in 2009 to win an August filing date for all independent Ohio Congressional candidates. Rich seeks support to file that suit. If filed in Federal Court, the suit would win. There is overwhelming precedent for a winning suit. Money is needed to file the suit. Contribute if you can. Inquiries welcome. I was endorsed in 2010 to campaign as a Green Party candidate. My name was on every OH1 ballot in November 2010.

For the 2010 results, see the web page, that outlines the demographics of possible victories that could have been in 2010, and that could be in 2018. Nonpartisans can win. We are a populist nonpartisan 80% voter majority of age eligible voters. [Report VR92], a 1998 Hamilton County Board of election report is still true today. The same situation exists in KY! Every State!


 2012: Decided to stand for Congress again for 2012 after some indecision. I will be 71 years young in January 2013. But only 70 when sworn in on January 03, 2013. We must try. Nonpartisans need to develop winning political campaigns. I try each campaign cycle. A template of Rich's campaign is available at no cost to other nonpartisan candidates for any public office, including all of the 535 Congressional seats. The template campaign is a gift to other nonpartisan candidates so we can have clean political campaigns and clean government. You will have the chance to vote for Rich again in 2016. My name was on every OH1 ballot in November 2012.

Rich's 2012 campaign web pages were published in February 2011. That election year was begun early to have most of 2011 and 2012 to work on our  campaign. For the first time, Yahoo Groups, You Tube, Twitter, and Face Book links were an active part of the 2012 campaign. We started early to represent you in OH1. We had the early start needed by nonpartisan independent candidates. Vote for Rich. You win.

 2014: Moved back to Louisville, Kentucky, my birthplace, in 2013. I will be 72 years of age in January 2014. I could not legally be a candidate for 2014. I am looking for a very good candidate to win the next OH1 election in 2014. I will be available as a campaign manager for a very good candidate. I came back to Louisville to be with my extended family and my son's family.

 2016:  I have published campaign pages and the 2016 THRO pages to be on the ballot in 2016 for U.S. Congress in Kentucky Three, Jefferson County (Louisville), KY. I was not able to get 400 valid signatures by the August 2016 filing deadline. May try again in 2018.


 2018: I have published campaign pages and the 2018 THRO pages to be on the ballot in 2018 for U.S. Congress in Kentucky Three, Jefferson County (Louisville), KY. I will explore for  supporters of my campaign. I will be 76 years of age in January 2018. I know how to run a campaign now and have a reasonable chance to do well or even win the election. I will use the campaign to work toward the ratification of an "Equal Political Speech" Amendment, and a Congressional Term Limits Amendemnt, to the U.S. Constitution I am also working on the renewed Glass-Steagal Act of 2019 (The Financial Security Act of 2019). Your $1.00 contribution is needed to challenge the career establishment Neoliberal Democratic incumbent. He supports his party, not the 99.999%.

The Occupy Movement has grown into a Populist wave that nearly won the Democratic Primary election for independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and that did elect a right wing Populist President, the first Populist since Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt back in the first half of the 20th Century. Unfortunately Wall Street still owns our corrupt Congress, and apparently our new President, who has failed to fulfill his Populist campaign rhetoric. He has done nothing to correct the extreme income inequality and frustration that got him elected. The booming stock market is the only accomplishment of the Trump White House, which ignores the needs of the 99.999% and his base. We need basic financial changes that will be accomplished by separation of the financial and commercial banks under the new Glass-Steagal Act of 2019. Elect Rich and other centrist independents who recognise the basic problems generated by giving control of government to Wall Street billionaires. Occupy Congressional elections to fire incumbent D's and R's. We can get our country back for the 99%. Entrepreneurial free enterprise can thrive on Main Street while maintaining stable growth without the high risk speculation that interrupts growth. We can return to the "happy days" of the 1950s.

For Allen, Mya, and Emma, my grandkids! And our next seven generations.



Your Voice: We need to speak aloud the whispers we speak in private. The "two corrupt parties" are words frequently spoken among friends and family in private. People who do not benefit from the "two corrupt parties" openly acknowledge the existence of corruption in the parties that run our lives. I want clean government that serves you, all of our people, and me. I feel a duty to the people of District Three to stand for public office to work for clean government. As I said above, "If not me, who? If not now, when?"

RICH STEVENSON, dist03ky at  (Top of Page)


To preserve freedom and our democratic republic we must not re-elect bipartisan career incumbents to public office, as often as possible, and replace them with as many newly elected private citizens as possible.


Elect "Rich." You win. We all win. Rich is on your ballot for KY District Three Representative to the U.S. Congress on November 03, 2020. You must be proactive in this election campaign to have your voice heard in the U.S. Congress.
OPEN CLEAN ELECTIONS Citizens for Stevenson

Elect nonpartisan independent candidates on your ballot. We all win if you apply term limits in the voting booth to all Incumbent public office holders. Establishment politicians do harm to our dreams of freedom and a democratic republic. As the years pass, incumbent politicians serve only their political party and other special interests that support their personal political ambitions.
