4th of July Get Together

To All,

I would like to introduce myself.

I am Doug Horner and I am running for City Council at large.

I hope to give all of the voters in Fort Wayne the choice of a candidate who believes in:

Lowering property taxes;
Protecting our property rights and civil liberties, and
Reducing the size of government.

The Libertarian Party of Allen County will be having a small get together on the IPFW campus to watch and enjoy the fireworks. Feel free to join us and chat awhile. I am certain that we will be able to either solve all of the worlds problems OR have a few fireworks of our own :)

Libertarians attending would be good to bring a bag or two of chips, a couple bottles of pop or whatever else you think would share well. We could probably also use some lawn chairs. This isn't the most organized 4th we've had but I'm certain we'll all have a good time and enjoy the day.

I will try to put us where we normally meet at the four way stop sign just East of Ketler Hall. I will try to be there early afternoon.

Should you be interested in helping me or any of the Libertarians running for office please don't hesitate to Email us or call me at 704 - 4698. We would love (and REALLY need) all the help we can get.

Respectfully,

Doug Horner

Mr. Horner,

Your platform sounds just like Matt Kelty's. Very idealistic. You nor anyone else will ever reduce taxes! Get real.

Everyone in politics is either an idealist, a cynic, or both. I favor reducing spending by not getting the city involved in wasteful projects like HS or the riverfront development project. I also hope to reduce the city's workforce through attrition: whenever certain city employees retire, the city would simply not hire a replacement.

Of course taxes could be reduced; however, the only way to do it is to cut spending.

Anonymous just seems to be a Negative Nancy. And he or she doesn't really understand the fact that taxes can be lowered. It is a simple process really.

By the way, I would have showed up to the little get together but I didn't read about it until today. And to be honest I was pretty tired because I worked from 9 to 7:30. There is always next year though.

I would also like to question why none of the contributors to this blog have mentioned the fact that the blue side of the FWCS Remonstrance has unofficially won the petition battle by an estimated 23,000 signatures.

Code Blue won. Yay. Sorry Kody, but it has been a busy week. Summit City Libertarians is still running, you can do a post there if you like. If I feel up to it today I might do a post about it.
