DC Libertarian candidate statements

3 Jan
The Board of Elections ask for candidate statements by January 2nd, that can be  placed in the candidate guides for voters in the April primary.  Here are the Libertarian candidate statements.

Ryan Sabot.  Ward 3 City council

Ward 3 is ready for a departure from the same old political scene that it has been dealing with for seven years. Ward 3 is ready for someone who can accurately represent the Ward’s unique needs in the DC Council, and Ward 3 is undoubtedly ready to make this change in November. Your vote will ensure DC stays open for business, drastically cuts taxes, continues to ensure school choice, guarantees all their personal liberty, and gives residents more transportation options. I am positive that we can obtain these things in government and that, together, we can start in November.

Sara Jane Panfil.  Delegate to Congress.


I left New York City for Washington, D.C. almost four years ago in search of lower rents, greater economic freedom, and greater personal freedom.  Although D.C. is certainly a freer place in many respects (the District does not presume to dictate what size beverage one can enjoy, for example), its citizens still live in the midst of a drug war, in a place that is hostile to Wal-Mart and other forms of economic development, where union contracts are protected over citizens’ personal property and dignity.  I hope to have the opportunity to fight for the District’s citizens as Congressional Delegate.

John Daniel. Shadow Senator.


My focus will be to get DC its voting rights, by disrupting the status quo. I will promote the Libertarian message of protecting American social liberties, less foreign involvement, less centralized government, that is fiscally responsible by not wasting taxpayer hard earned dollars! The most important issue is innovating the disastrous tax code, by giving municipalities the freedom to collect more of their own taxes, than the Federal Government. This will empower Americans to be more in control of their communities, and in turn will create a competitive, accountable, and eventually a thriving environment

Martin Moulton. Shadow Representative


DC must stop condemning families and communities by forcing students attend failing schools. Government must empower ALL parents to send children to the best schools.

The District’s drug war puts unsustainable burdens on MPD, judicial, and incarceration facilities with funds better used on other public services, preventative education and treatment. DC must stop incarcerating #BlackMenAndBoys and other minorities for non-violent drug offenses at rates grossly out of line with the demographic reality of drug usage in DC and elsewhere. Current policies destroy individuals, families, and communities and enrich the gun industry in the drugwar firearms race as criminals seek to out gun police. Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and crack might degrade the human immune system making it susceptible to cancer and other disease. But the urgent need to end continued violence, motivated by cash-only markets and turf battles, grossly outweighs government’s role in regulating choices through destructive prohibition.

As a DC41 member is was arrested in protest of Federal tyranny that denies our civil rights and the full benefits of US citizenship.

Pranav Badhwar. Ward 6 City Council


My wife and I are devoted to this city where our children were born and attend school. I create and launch wireless products for a living, and understand the hard work needed to effectively deliver services to the public. I want to see DC flourish, and envision a city that protects rights over your body, property, and associations. A city which generates opportunities for the neediest, where men and women can thrive as small business owners, where people have affordable housing and transportation, and where our youth attend effective schools and are no longer jailed for non-violent drug offences.

Frederick Steiner, City Council At Large



I’ve lived in the DC area for 10 years, after the birth of my daughter I learned I could no longer remain aloof from the community I lived in. I learned that everyone has a shared interest in things like good schools and safe streets, that vibrant neighborhoods create opportunities for all, that transparency and openness is a requirement for good governance. I needed to do my part in the attainment of those ideals. I have no grand political aspirations, and self funded my campaign so I don’t owe anyone anything. I’m just a person trying to do the right thing.

Bruce Majors, Mayor


I have lived in DC since 1980.  I have watched it become morbidly obese, with a swollen $9 billion dollar budget, that just like real obesity leads to many diseases: corruption and cronyism, high rents and no affordable housing, as the politically connected line up for your tax dollars.  The DC political class needs to be put on a diet, and opportunities need to be legalized for those who are not federal lawyers or lobbyists with 6 figure incomes taken from the taxpayer.  Your vote for Libertarians starts these needed changes.
