I am running to give Indiana voters a choice. My business experience, leadership experience in several civic organizations, engineering education at Purdue and Libertarian philosophy qualify me to ask for your vote. In an election year marred by unprecedented political acrimony, a third party candidate will be more than a vote for 'None of the Above.' Hoosiers are tired of politicians who cling to anachronistic party positions and eschew collaboration. We live in a time of unprecedented complexity and change. Politicians that exploit the electorate's fear and confusion and promise a return to yesterday's bromides aren't just out of touch - they are insulting our intelligence. More importantly: they are wasting our time.
The number one issue in this race is ethics. Ethics is a non-partisan issue that everyone should agree on. When a Commissioner receives $10,000 in campaign contributions from the very attorneys presenting a case on behalf of a utility two days before that case is voted on, how can anyone assume that the Commissioner is going to be fair and unbiased? When a majority of a Commissioner’s campaign contributions come from the executives, lobbyists and attorneys of the very entities they are charged with regulating, how is that not a conflict of interest? When a Commissioner accepts $14,000 in gifts in just their current term, how are we supposed to believe that they remain neutral? Would you be surprised to find out that all of this describes the current incumbent of 18 years? It is time for a change in Georgia. On November 6th, I urge voters to say “enough is enough” by voting for David Staples. Together we can change how business is done at the Public Service Commission.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
