I was Elected to City Council!

I am 24 and ran a race against 9 others for 3 seats. I defeated 3 incumbents and was the top vote getter.

I am excited to help out my community (South East Michigan) during this time, as well as assist liberty minded candidates throughout the area with similar endeavors.

Thank you so much for the congratulations, I never expected this would make front page. My girlfriend even made sure to take a screenshot and save it. Thanks again, I am so proud to be part of this movement.

Were you trashed by the establishment or welcomed?

It's also nice to hear that there are a couple people left in Michigan.

Politicians today aim to grow our economy by burning our cities to the ground, instead they should take a lesson in economic theory.

Will, I ran on city issues

Will, I ran on city issues only and was greatly welcomed. Only friends and family know my views regarding state and federal government.

Gratz!!!!

We are all tiny ants, but together we can move mountains one little piece at a time!

Hurrr...

aaaagh!

I was not elected

but I did get the highest vote percentage of any Libertarian in my state. The fight isn't over.

Congratulations your achievement is outstanding and gives us all hope!

Thanks Ladalang, I was lucky

Thanks Ladalang, I was lucky enough to run in a non-partisan election and avoid the issue of "right/left" allegiances. Get involved in your cities boards and commissions as well as community service organizations. Networking and building a reputation is huge.

Congratulations. Please post your

web site and how you think you won. I'm sure a lot of people here could use some encouragement to run for local gov. How did you get started? How did you run your campaign?

Thanks from Saginaw

James, I am fortunate to

James, I am fortunate to have been raised in a politically active family and had a strong foundation and networks to work on. That was a huge advantage. The second was going door to door to every resident that has voted in a city election. I could not have won without that (Grassroots!).

Here is my website: http://kylegeralds4citycouncil.weebly.com/index.html

It is not anything special and is light on major issues - it just gave voters a sense of who I am.

The best way to start is by getting on city boards and commissions and become active in local community service organizations - lions, jaycees, goodfellows, elks, masons, eagles, moose, knights of columbus etc.

When things settle slightly (summer vacation) i'll create a skeleton guideline to running a city election and share it.

Feel free to contact me.

great

nibbling at the edges.....

Congrats

As a SE MI resident, Sterling Heights, it's good news that's close to home.

Now we can find out who you really are.

For some reason, we're expected to know every law that exists in America & in our state so we don't break it. We're supposed to know this when we're 18. There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E. Thank God for bugs, they're company for people in solitary confinement.

Congrats. Now get to work!

Take the time now to read your city charter, state constitution and US constitution if you haven't already done so. Your voice against unconstitutional corrupt actions(however well intended) will go a long way to helping out the people in your town.

Warn against Federal grants of all kinds as an intrusion into the soveriegnty of your local government.

Most importantly God bless you for your efforts.

Peace

They are trying to compile a list of victories,

So if you have a link to a newspaper article to the name and town information so you can be added to the list, please do so!
I got an email saying that 3 candidates in Washington State and 2 candidates in Virginia were elected. This has probably happened all over the country, and we need to broadcast the encouraging news!

Congratulations! :-)

"Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing. Let not those who love the power of the welfare/warfare state label the dissenters of authoritarianism as unpatriotic or uncaring. Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security." Congressman Ron Paul

Great!

Gratz!

Wow! Impressive!

Congrats to you for this major win!!
