School Board Campaign

This is the first time I have ever ran for public office. It has been interesting so far.

I have had two people contact me in the last week and offer to help me. One of them heard me speak about the race and decided to make copies of my fliers and distribute them to their friends! Another person has been discussing it with her neighbors and wants to have a meeting and invite several people over to discuss the campaign.

I need all the help I can get. I hope some of the regular readers of this blog decide to help me. Almost 100 people check this blog on a daily basis and most of them live in this area. I ask you for your help!

Here are some ways you can help me:

1. Money is the life blood of any political campaign. Please contribute to my campaign. Please make checks payable to "Taxpayers to elect Mike Sylvester" and mail them to:
Mike Sylvester
625 Windrift Lane
Fort Wayne, IN 46845

2. Please feel free to let anyone you know in NACS about my campaign for School Board. I need about 2500 votes to win May 2nd.

3. I will be doing a couple of literature drops in April when the weather is nice. I could use some help distributing information.

4. I need some people to join my campaign and help with various items. Please send me an email at and we can get started.

Expect to hear more in the next few weeks...

Mike Sylvester

I for one would like to hear your response to the NACS expulsion. I believe this issue strikes at the very heart of the Libertarian party. From the national libertarian party website:

"We defend the rights of individuals to unrestricted freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the right of individuals to dissent from government itself. ...
We oppose any abridgment of the freedom of speech through government censorship, regulation or control of communications media"

I know you've said in the past that your ideology is not exactly inline w/ the party on every issue so I was hoping you would provide your thoughts on the situation...

I have read the piece in question and there is no doubt in my mind that the School should have punished Jeff Fraser. What he wrote was insulting and innapropriate...

That being said; he is a good student with a clean record. Expulsion is not the right punishment.

NACS over-reacted and expelled a good student for one offense.
