On Thursday, October 16, 2008 at 4:30pm consumer advocate and Presidential candidate Ralph Nader will hold a press conference that will be open to the public in the New Paltz Friends Meeting House. He will speak about the Wall St. Bailout, single-payer health care, the Iraq War, environmental degradation, and the state of the Presidential debates from which he was excluded.

Ralph Nader is the only Presidential candidate who has been pointing out the risks of deregulation for the last 20 years and supports jail time, not bail time for Wall Street fat cats.  He is the number three contender for the Presidency, America‚Äôs number one consumer advocate, and he has real solutions to our economic woes.

About Ralph Nader
Attorney, author, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has been named by Time Magazine one of the "100 Most Influential Americans in the 20th Century." For more than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions. He led the movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and was instrumental in enacting the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless other pieces of important consumer legislation. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received an LL.B from Harvard Law School.
