Kevin R. McCarthy for Jefferson County Commissioner

Campaigning

Sorry, I haven’t been posting in a while.  I’ve been putting up a wood fence and doing yardwork.

It’s pretty neat to watch what’s going on in the Democrat runoff.  I’m looking forward to the main event.

For those that are interested I have a few ideas to spread the word about my campaign.

First, I plan on being at the monthly meeting for Jefferson County Libertarians each month.  We meet on the second Tuesday at Sertinos Cafe in the Best Buy shopping center in Beaumont. They have some pretty good food and an ice cream bar, which I have been strenuously avoiding.  If you have some time and questions about me and/or the Libertarian Party, then come out and say hi.

Second, starting when I get the fence and yardwork finished (say in May), I plan on spending Saturday Lunches at a variety of places around town.  I’ll post where I plan on being a week or two in advance and try to get it in the newspapers and various community calendars.  I’ll eat and hang out for a few hours.  If the location allows it, I’ll have some Libertarian materials and such.  I hope that some of my many reader come introduce themselves (even if you aren’t in Precinct 3).

Third, if anyone would be interested in hosting a coffee or something, then let me know.  I can bring some homemade goodies and be willing to discuss anything you like in a small (or large) group.

Finally, I’m hoping that the PA News will host a debate between myself and the Democratic candidate.  Not just the bio that they did before, but an actual debate.  Alternately, a question/answer column with you guys asking the questions and us answering the questions.  That might even be better.  You know what you want.

This summer, I’ll be visiting some areas of the precinct and talking with everyone I can.

I want to know what your concerns are, what you think is wrong, what needs to be fixed and any ideas you have that could help.

It’s time to get serious.   You have a choice between me and another Democrat.  I can’t promise I’ll do everything right, but I can promise that I will try to lower taxes, reduce the county budget, and fix Ford Park… not to mention getting some common sense into the government.
