I write you today with a plea for an indulgence that should not require any formal request, to plead with you to allow my voice to be heard at the 2016 presidential debates, in the form of my chosen proxy… the Libertarian Candidate for President of the United States.

Pinal County, Arizona, just like the rest of our Country, is awash in candidates for election. One area of concern and opportunity is in the Candidate slate for Pinal County Sheriff. As voters, we have exactly one chance to get it right.

It’s hard to imagine why any civic-minded, well-informed Pinal County resident would vote for Steve Henry and Lando Voyles, the self-proclaimed Law and Order Team. These men are no different than the criminals they supposedly fight.

Last week I was blindsided by a lawsuit challenging the 545 signatures I collected from voters in LD16 to run for office.

. . . one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all!

Sadly, our nation’s presidential campaign has peeled back the veneer that for too long has obscured dark chapters of our history and stifled civil dialogue about our commitment to ensuring liberty and justice for all.

Last August I urged caution as our Pinal County Board of Supervisors considered and adopted a resolution offered by Supervisor Anthony Smith aligning Pinal County with a proposal promoted by a visiting representative of County Commissioners from the State of Idaho. The radical proposal seeks to transfer ownership and financial responsibility of our federal public lands to a group of western states.
