Libertarians Chuck Donovan & John Monds



Two Libertarians, Chuck Donovan, who is running for the U.S. Senate & John Monds, who is running for Governor are trying to do what some people think is impossible:

Win statewide as a Libertarian.

First lets take a look a Donnovan:

Chuck Donovan is a professional pilot with over 33 years of private, military, and commercial aviation experience. Beginning in an immigrant working class neighborhood, he focused his life on aviation and eventually accomplished all of the things he had dreamed about when he was in the third grade. He served as a fighter/attack pilot in the US Marines from 1980 to 1986. He is currently flying in his 23rd year as a major airline pilot. He has commanded aircraft and crews to 6 of the 7 continents, but says the best lessons learned were while he flew around his own country.

Chuck says:

The Democratic and Republican party leadership have refused to make the difficult, unpopular decisions necessary to correct the problems they themselves have brought upon our great country.

I absolutely agree with that assertion that both parties don not want to make the necessary hard decisions to address the growing problems that are facing the country, in which they (democrats & republicans) helped create.

Keep your eye on Mr. Donovan.

John Monds is running for the Libertarian nomination for governor.

Monds In his capacity as a member and currently President of the Grady County NAACP, Monds has held financial literacy classes for the Holder Park Summer Program, helped implement the Freedom Day Health Fair and advocated for citizens who believed they had been treated unjustly. He is a twenty year member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and has held various leadership positions on the local and state level including President of the Mu Beta Beta chapter.

In addition,
Monds also serves on the Grady County Planning Commission, Grady County Habitat for Humanity board, the Libertarian Party of Georgia Executive Committee and the Grady County Fine Arts Project & is a graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta.

Monds platform includes Reforming Georgia's Taxes, Tax Credits for parents, allowing more school options for parents, & balacing Georgia's Budget.

I admit I haven't been watching these two gentlemen, but I will be keeping tabs on them from here, to all the way to the General Election. Two true small government candidates running for statewide offices should make the esrablishment republicans nervous comes election night. The Libertarian Party is a force to be reckoned with & now with the Equal Ballot Access Bill moving at the State Legislature, they will be a force on the political scene for many years to come.

Give credit to Jeff Sexton at Southwest Georgia Politics (SWGA Politics) for starting this movement to get the Equal Ballot Access passed by the General Assembly. Way to go Jeff! Yoy deserve all the credit on this.

Greetings All,

Kudos to Peanut Politics for covering the ongoing adventures of Libertarians John Monds and Chuck Donovan. I'd like to point out that we have a declared candidate for Secretary of State, David Chastain, who is making the rounds and drumming up support to carry the banner of Liberty onto the field this fall. David is focused on the Diebold Menace and will fix the audit trail mess left by Karen "What? Finish my Term?!" Handel.

Kudos to Peanut Politics as well for covering these candidates that are often ignored by the more established bloggers in the state.
