Opportunity to kick ineffective incumbents out of power and serve your fellow citizen

We know there are some honorable folks out there that could truly do good public works. Look at the list below of local offices without an opposing candidate this year. See any local taxing authorities?

As a Libertarian, you don't run in the primary. You will see your name printed on the ballot with an icon of Lady Liberty beside it instead of a donkey or an elephant. Libertarians have ballot access. With the definite anti-incumbent mood out there, you could help rattle some cages and do good for the taxpayers and ultimately the future of this place your children will inherit.

Step up if you have talent, education, and time and desire to give back.

Candidate recruitment at full steam

By means of redistricting the major parties have carved out "safe districts," where the election results are so certain that the lesser major party won't even run a candidate. Based on preliminary filings, 21 Democrats and 30 Republicans will run unopposed in November in Marion County.

The Libertarian Party of Marion County is seeking candidates for November, particularly for these one-sided races.

It's a good way to showcase our party and to point out one of many ways that the major parties have broken our democratic system.

As of now, the offices that have only one candidate include:

State Senate districts 33 and 35
State Representative districts 25, 88, 90, 97, 98, and 99
Center Township Board Districts 1, 2, and 3
All Decatur Township Board Districts except 3
All Franklin Township Board Districts
Lawrence Township Board Districts 4, 5, and 7
All Perry Township Board Districts except 4
Pike Township Board Districts 1, 3, 4, and 5
All Warren Township Board Districts except 3
Washington Township Board Districts 2, 3, and 7
All Warren Township Board Districts except 3

The LPMC has so far recruited about 20 candidates for public office in November, including 6 candidates in two-way races. If you are willing to throw your hat into the ring for a very good cause, i.e., freedom from other people trying to make your private decisions, please contact Co-Chair Barry Campbell at altic.lock(at)gmail.com.
