Warren Redlich, an attorney and Town of Guilderland Board member, announced his candidacy for governor of New York state earlier today. Redlich, who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2006, was Ron Paul's attorney in New York state in 2008 and made sure that Paul appeared on the ballot in New York state.
Redlich's campaign focus is simple. He says we need to stop wasting money and says that New York state can save $5 billion by eliminating some unnecessary departments and functions. He also wants to give voters the right to approve politicians' pay raises, eliminate some taxes and bring about real tort reform.
On other issues Redlich's positions lean toward libertarianism. He believes strongly in the second amendment right to bear arms. He wants to rein in eminent domain, reform antiquated drug laws and make traffic law enforcement a safety issue not a means to raise revenue.
Redlich is the founder of the Redlich law firm and Town-Court.com, a web based directory of traffic courts in the United States. He was born and raised in New York state and has a law degree from Albany Law School. Redlich is married and is the father of two children.
