D.C.'s Historic First Libertarian Primary Tuesday

Apr 1 2014, 2:03am CDT | by

There are 4 political party primaries in Washington, D.C. Tuesday - Democrats, Republicans, Statehood Greens, and for the first time Libertarians. Libertarians have 7 candidates on the ballot in 7 races, mayor, Congress, Shadow Senator, Shadow Rep, City Council at Large, Ward 3 city council, Ward 6 city council, and a write in candidate for City Council chair. DC allows same day registration for those not registered. Others may ask for special ballots to vote in the primary of their choice.

Washington, DC, April 01, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Here is a GOTV letter from Pranav Badhwar, Libertarian candidate for the Ward 6 city council seat:

"Friends and Neighbors -

"Please vote in the primary election today to liberate and empower individuals to succeed. Tell the establishment that we will challenge their authority, which rewards the power elite and special interests who feed off the misery of the least advantaged.

"Vote Pranav Badhwar for Ward 6 on April 1st. And vote for the full slate of Libertarian candidates. Write-in our names on any ballot, even if you are not a registered Libertarian. The slate is here: http://www.dclibertarians2014.blogspot.com

"With fewer taxes and regulations we can: Improve Schools: Charters effectively deliver education at about 40% of the cost of the almost $30,000 in per pupil spending. Reduce DCPS' central planning authority and put authority over the budget and operations in the hands of traditional public school principals and parents who can adjust staffing to meet the unique needs of their students. Improve educational effectiveness to reduce poverty, crime, homelessness, and taxes.

"Create Jobs: Eliminate or reduce business licenses and fees, including the need for six years of education and experience for interior decorators, one year training for pest control applicators, and thirty-nine other restrictions on professions which don't require a college degree and which erect barriers for those already disadvantaged by government schools. Increase jobs to reduce poverty, crime, homelessness, and taxes.

"Reduce Crime: Free police to pursue non-violent drug offenders and focus them on real crimes of violence, theft, and fraud. Reduce street violence by eliminating aggressive prosecution of victimless crimes. Stop criminalizing non-violent drug offenders and stunting their ability to get jobs and housing, forcing them into a cycle of poverty and crime and making them into wards of the state. Protect rights to reduce poverty, crime, homelessness, and taxes."
