Houston Chronicle covers local Libertarians
Posted on Mar 22, 2010
The Houston Chronicle reports:
Libertarian officeholders across Texas include party chairman [Patrick] Dixon, a city council member in Lago Vista, as well as city council members in Anna, Springtown, Quintana and Jarrell; a member of the San Antonio River Authority; the presiding judge of the Brownsville Municipal Court; and the chairman of the Carrollton Board of Adjustment.
Although [Debra] Medina and [Ron] Paul are libertarian Republicans, [Harris County chairman Guy] McLendon emphasized that Libertarians traditionally have no truck with either party.
“We're neither far right nor far left” he said. “We basically align ourselves with Ben Franklin, who believed that government should neither spend all your money nor tell you how to live your life.”
