While Libertarians are sometimes dismissive of Primary Elections, owing to the partisan, private business nature of so much of the ballot, there are good reasons to vote on May 4. Ask for a ‘School Board & Issues Ballot’ so that you may cast a vote on non-partisan school board candidates, and vote on referenda and other local issues in your community.
Allison Maguire is running for school board in Pike Township, in northwest Marion County. Allison is running in tandem with local attorney Paul Ogden, in favor of more proactive maintenance of buildings, and in opposition to a $21 million referendum. Maguire points out that roughly have of property tax dollars are spent on schools, so it’s crucial to elect a Libertarian to the school boards that direct the spending.
