I’m Running For Office

I first need to apologize up front. It really wasn’t my intention to make this announcement here, but since my website is still being designed and nobody pays attention to me on myspace (haha), I figured I would give my friends here a heads up.

It’s been a very stressful year. I don’t want to get into it here, but some of you know what I’ve been through. Anyways, it was my original intention to represent the Libertarian Party on the local ballot here in Michigan this year. That won’t happen. However, I will still run for office & will appear on the November 4th General Election ballot in a non-partisan race.

I filed the paperwork today & paid the filing fee, so I’m pleased to announce my candidacy for Lake Michigan College Board of Trustees. There are 2 seats up for grabs this year with a 6 year term on the line. I’m very relieved this part of the process is finally over with and I look forward to the challenges a head.

I want to thank Elfninosmom for being very supportive of me. I’ve confided in her several times during the past year and someone I will always consider to be a friend. I would also like to thank “G.E” because when I thought I was running for State Rep, he took a real interest in my campaign and was very supportive.

I can’t promise much at this point, but I do promise to run a positive campaign based on REAL libertarian principles.

The website isn’t even close to completion yet, but I’m sure my wife will have it ready in the next week or so. The site will be located at http:///www.votegatties.org. Wish me luck.

Bob BarrFrom Fox News:

Barr told FOX News on Tuesday that he should know in the next few days whether he is going to go for it.

If he does decide to make an announcement in the next few days, Barr said it “would not be in either Washington or Atlanta.

Another source told FOX News that the announcement should happen this weekend, probably on April 5. That is the day Barr is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Heartland Libertarian Conference in Kansas City, Mo.

I wonder if Mr. Barr will end his Republican PAC and call for the repeal of DOMA if he is the Libertarian Party’s Presidential nominee. Of course, when he announces (if he announces) these questions will almost certainly be asked by his 14+ Libertarian opponents.
