Libertarian Gains Newspaper Endorsement

This is a nice newspaper endorsement for Libertarian city council candidate Robert Enders. From the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel...

The council has never had a Libertarian, and putting one there would make the body more interesting. A Libertarian would always raise points not usually made by either Republicans or Democrats.

So we recommend that voters give council a Libertarian - Robert Enders, who is seeking the 6th District seat.

If elected, his top priority would be to provide long-term property tax relief by controlling local spending. He would return to a respect for property rights by arguing against eminent domain and such things as the smoking ban. He would also concentrate on crime prevention. He said he would try to erase the unfair perception that the south side of Fort Wayne is more dangerous than the north side.

Also seeking the office are incumbent Democrat Glynn Hines, who is serving his second term, and Republican Joe Smith. Hines would continue the economic-development focus on the southeast side of town, work on new housing and the rehabilitation of existing housing, and also concentrate on infrastructure improvements.

    You should take a look at the Wounded Warriors Project. It raises awareness for severely wounded combat U.S. combat veterans in Iraq and Afghanistan. It really puts a face on the cost of the war. Here’s a link:

    It’s only the second time a non D or R won an endorsement from one of the two Fort Wayne newspapers. In November, 1980, the “Journal-Gazette” endorsement for president went to John Anderson.

    I will not be making Endorsements until April or June ‘08.
