Why are you running for office?

Low voter turnout leads me to believe that many residents are discouraged and therefore stay away from the political process.  When I run it will provide the people with a 3rd Party option, something rare in this state.  Also, I want to become engaged with the community I grew up in by walking house to house listening to their concerns and ideas.

Why are you running as a Libertarian?

Because of two basic principles.  First is accepting personal lifestyle choices.  I don't smoke marijuana but if others want to then it's their choice, not mine.  Second is economic freedom.  People who work hard and are creative should keep their earnings, not be forced to distribute to others.

What is the role of government?

Protecting privacy and property rights, using the courts to settle disputes, and making sure we have choices in life.
