“I am hopeful that me winning soundly in a local election will inspire others to throw their hat in the ring in the future”, said Mr. Tillman. ” I knocked on around 800 doors and won 63% of the vote, and never backed away from my Libertarian views. “
“It is nice to have statewide ballot access, but we will never dream of winning a statewide election until we start winning the local ones. I encourage others to get involved on the local level, many of these offices are winnable, and do not require a significant financial investment, just a lot of hard work. I will be glad to help others get their campaigns started.”
