Libertarian Michael Scott runs for State Representative in Washington’s 10th District

Camano Island – Libertarian Michael Scott will be on the ballot this year for State Representative in Washington’s 10th district, encompassing Whidbey, Camano Island, and parts of Snohomish and Skagit county as well.

Michael is among 31 other Libertarians running for office in Washington State, and is very optimistic about his party’s chances of success this year. Michael received nearly 24% of the vote in the 2014 elections – and with the Libertarian presidential ticket garnering 10% in national polls; Michael believes the moment has come for the Libertarian party to make an impact on American politics.

“Libertarians define themselves as fiscally conservative and socially liberal – centrists like most Americans. With Republican and Democrat “fringe” candidates appealing to only the most extreme elements of either party at the national level, the Libertarian party now comes across as being the adults in the room, and we welcome that.”

Michael’s campaign will be focused on bringing about “Positive Change” in his community. He states, “We need to end the monopoly of a two-party system compromised by special-interests groups, and find common-sense solutions that benefit the communities themselves, not politicians or lobbyists”. Michael also believes it’s time to start enacting term-limits for all those holding public office, limiting it to a maximum of three consecutive terms total.

Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson says “Michael Scott is the real deal for voters in the 10th district. His campaign for positive change is sure to bring about positive results.”

Famous activist, business mogul, and former Libertarian presidential candidate John McAfee fully supports Michael’s vision of “finding common sense solutions that protect personal rights and liberty while sustaining healthy economies and business.” The Libertarian Party of Washington State also endorses Michael.

When asked about the specific issues facing his district, Michael would demand the legislature release funds earmarked for education – funds that the Washington State Supreme Court ordered dispensed but schools have yet to receive. He states, “Legislators on both sides of the aisle have failed to carry out this ruling by the Supreme Court. I think that says a lot about the priorities of the two parties, and why having Libertarians such as myself in office are a much-needed positive change to the system.”
