FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Michael Oatman Seeking LD-29 Seat Held By Daniel Patterson
Description: Michael Oatman files for the Arizona Legislative District 29 seat vacated by Daniel Patterson.
TUCSON, AZ, 19 April 2012 — Michael Oatman reported today from his Tucson offices, that as of 4:15 pm on 18 April 2012, Oatman has filed the necessary paperwork to be considered by the Pima County Board of Supervisors’ Nominating Committee to be appointed to replace ex-Rep. Daniel Patterson, who resigned last Wednesday amid an ethics investigation.
Oatman had reregistered as an independent voter on 11 April 2012 after having been registered with the Green Party, in order to participate in the 2012 Arizona Presidential Preference Election. He placed third in Arizona Green Party voting, and won outright in Apache County. He also placed tied for first with fellow Green Party candidate Richard Grayson in voting amongst candidates who participated in the Tucson Weekly’s Project White House contest.
Oatman has been an independent voter for most of his last 12 years living in Tucson, having briefly registered Democrat to participate in the 2008 Presidential Preference Election where he received 192 votes, and having registered Green Party for about a year in order to assist in providing the party with enough voters on their rolls to qualify as a major political party in 2002.
When asked for a comment, Oatman replied, “I was appointed once to the Senate when I was at Penn State [in the Undergraduate Student Government], so I think there is a decent precedent that I would get appointed here. I was in THIMUN [The Hague International Model United Nations] so at least I know parlimentary procedure. In fact, I might be most qualified to be the replacement for Patterson, since we were both in Food Not Bombs together.”
Oatman is a local Tucsonan businessman and entrepreneur, and lives a few blocks north of the Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Legislative District 29.
