Eric Cooper To Speak At Iowans for Tax Relief Event

Eric Cooper, Libertarian Party candidate for Iowa governor, will be speaking at the 2010 Iowa Taxpayers' Day. The event, sponsored by the public watchdog group Iowans for Tax Relief, will be held Saturday, April 17, 2010 from 3:00pm - 5:00pm at the Holiday Inn Hotel Northwest in Des Moines. According to Ed Failor Jr., President of Iowans for Tax Relief, "Iowa Taxpayers' Day continues our mission to educate and inform Iowans on tax and spending issues."

Des Moines Register political columnist Kathie Obradovich will be the Master of Ceremonies and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is set to be the keynote speaker. In addition to Eric Cooper, Republican gubernatorial candidates Terry Branstad, Jonathan Narcisse, Rod Roberts, and Bob Vander Plaats will also speak. Governor Culver was invited but did not respond.

Cooper is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Iowa State University, and is currently the Vice Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Iowa. When running for the state legislature in 2008, Professor Cooper had the most successful Libertarian campaign in Iowa, winning 21% of the vote in that race. Nick Weltha of Des Moines is running for Lt. Governor. In general, Cooper and Weltha believe in smaller government, less taxes and regulations, and more personal freedom.
