New Independent SuperPAC commences media campaign for US House of Representatives Congressional (CA-26) candidate Linda Parks of Ventura, CA.

Ventura, Calif. (May 23, 2012) – Today, icPurple launched an aggressive television and online media campaign in support of independent candidates across California, including Ventura’s congressional candidate Linda Parks.

icPurple is based on the core principle that by supporting moderate, independent candidates, this movement will encourage more pragmatic and solutions-oriented political behavior in Washington, D.C. and in states across the country.

“This is about building a movement,” said the group’s principal founder, Ted Waitt, philanthropist and co-founder of Gateway, Inc. “The ‘centrist majority’ — the 40 percent of the American electorate we have been hearing so much about in the news lately — are demanding pragmatic and problem-solving behavior from our elected officials once again. We believe independent minded voters will see this as an opportunity for more than just a statement vote, but as a chance for real political change.”

icPurple does not represent a political party or special interests, nor does it purport to have third party ambitions. The group’s core values are outlined in the newly authored ‘Declaration of Independents,’ stating, “I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I am an American.”

In addition to supporting Parks, publicly endorses independent candidates at the local, state, and federal levels in California and across the country. Those currently listed include Nathan Fletcher, Independent candidate for Mayor of San Diego, CA; Chad Walsh, Independent candidate for State Assembly in Silicon Valley, CA; and Chad Condit, Independent candidate for Congress in Modesto, CA.

Linda Parks, current County Supervisor, mother of four, and former urban planner, is not afraid to take risks and to stake her reputation on problem-solving and long-term solutions. The major political parties have alternatively charged Linda Parks with being both too liberal and too conservative for their respective tastes – the sign of a true independent leader. In February 2012 she said to the Ventura County Star, “Congress is broken and we need to end the partisan extremism to effectively govern, fix the economy and create jobs.”

Outside of California, icPurple is also prominently supporting Angus King, the two-term independent governor of Maine seeking Senator Olympia Snowe’s (R-ME) soon to be vacated Senate seat. King is a beacon for the independent movement taking foot across the country. Speaking to in April 2012, Independent Governor King said, “What these folks [DC insiders] really respect more than anything else is electoral power. I think my election would send the message not only to the people in the Senate but also to the people in the country that there is a different way.”


icPurple is an independent political action committee dedicated to the election of independent leaders. The organization represents an ever-growing movement of American voters who are tired of government paralysis at the hands of partisan politics. They believe it is time for politicians to put patriotism above party loyalty and engage in pragmatic, problem-solving leadership.
