Support Libertarian For Mayor Of Charlotte
From the Campaign of Rusty Sheridan
Libertarian for Mayor of Charlotte
Libertarian Mayoral Candidate offers alternative
Libertarian mayoral candidate Rusty Sheridan, whose
party was decertified by the Board of Elections in
August, still plans on serving as Charlotte's next
mayor. "I wouldn't have filed for the office if I
didn't plan on winning", said Sheridan.
It's an uphill battle, but there is hope.
In Raleigh there is a pending lawsuit which would
force the BOE to place his name, as well as the names
of the other Libertarian candidates across the state
who were decertified, back on the ballot. If that
lawsuit isn't settled by Election Day, Sheridan urges
Charlotte citizens to write in his name for mayor.
"It's really sad that the BOE saw fit to deny the
people of Charlotte a real choice for mayor. You've
got big-spender McCrory, or big-government Madans.
Those are the only options the elites want you to
have. I won't go down without a fight. The people of
Charlotte deserve better."
Sheridan was the first alternative candidate, but now
there is another option, Republican Don Reid,
springing up out of the woodwork. Reid announced his
write-in bid for mayor last week: several months after
Sheridan filed, then was dismissed by state action.
"I've been a write-in candidate since the moment the
BOE kicked me off. I had been waiting for the judge's
decision in our court case, but then I saw a cartoon
in the Observer about Reid's campaign and heard it
discussed on talk radio. Now I look to the press to
present my information. Afterall, unlike Reid, I was
dedicated enough to this race to file this summer with
other balloted candidates. It was the bureaucrats that
forced me to convert to a write-in campaign."
Sheridan urges all citizens who believe in personal
responsibility and limited governmental intrusion into
citizens' lives to write in Rusty Sheridan for mayor
of Charlotte. And he urges all press to give him the
same coverage they have to Don Reid.
And, assuming he wins his lawsuit before Election Day
and gets his name back on the ballot, Sheridan urges
all press to give him equal coverage to McCrory and
"Charlotteans have two choices. More government, or
Rusty Sheridan. I trust they will make the proper
decision, if only the press will let them know."
