American Majority’s New Leaders Project is designed to inspire and empower the hard working citizens across our country to become part of the solution to the problems that they see every day in their communities. Out-of-control town or school board budgets, irresponsible tax increases, lack of transparency and excessive regulations are just some of the local issues that impact our lives. Many of our local elected officials are never challenged to make better decisions, or faced with the threat of an opponent who commits to doing a better job or representing the community. They run unopposed and are re-elected every year.
There are over 500,000 elected positions across the country. We believe that our elected officials should be held accountable for their decisions. If they don’t do the job that they are elected to do, they should be replaced. The New Leaders Project is here to give you the tools and confidence to bring change to your community, by running for office or finding and helping others who will.
Government spending is continuing to grow, while the economy suffers. Policies and regulations are taking away our freedoms to make choices in our everyday lives. It’s time for a change. So sign the pledge, and become part of the solution.
From our signers:
“We joined the New Leaders Project to grow our pro-Constitution and conservative influence on local and state policies and to build a pool of elected leaders that might one day be fighting for the Constitution from Nashville and Washington, D.C.”
Eric Stamper, SURG
“Annette Olson of Uninfringed Liberty in Wisconsin (a St. Croix County Tea Party group), joined the New Leaders Project, and single-handedly recruited 14 candidates to run for office in her county in 2012. Of these 14 candidates, seven won county board races against liberal, union-backed incumbents, two others were reelected, and one school board candidate defeated the most liberal member of her county school board. That’s ten conservative candidates elected in a single county, out of 14 on the ballot.”

“Our NE Taxpayers for Freedom group firmly believes that it is not enough to engage in wishful thinking to restore our nation’s freedoms and liberties. We feel that it is imperative that we provide current and comprehensive seminars to offer conservative candidates the logistical and grass-roots support necessary to campaign for and win public office. Such are the reasons why we praise the New Leaders Project for providing such seminars to both candidates and their potential volunteers.”
Doug Kagan, NE Taxpayers for Freedom
“As President Ronald Reagan said “We need new leaders unfettered by old ties, old relationships.” American Majority has been instrumental in equipping Candidates & Activists with the proper tools to address the great need for Americans to become engaged in the politics of America and to restore fiscal responsibility, free markets, and constitutionally limited government to this great land of ours!”
James Murphy, Green Bay Tea Party
