The city of Oxnard, California is heading to court in an attempt to stave off a resident’s effort to overturn sewer rate hikes at the ballot box, the city announced Wednesday evening.
The city is suing former LNC treasurer and long time LP activist Aaron Starr, who earlier this month filed paperwork for a planned signature drive intended to put an initiative on the November ballot to undo the recent rate hike.
“How hysterical is it that the city council wants to sue a citizen for filing a citizen petition?” asked Carla Howell, Political Director for the Libertarian National Committee. “I’d love to see the part where they have to prove there’s a victim who has been ‘damaged’ by a mere filing. Hopefully this will backfire and prove the need to cut taxes even more.”
LP.org carries some recent news about Gary Johnson as well:
The New York Times ran a feature story on March 22 on Gary Johnson, a candidate for the 2016 Libertarian Party Presidential nomination.
“…the anti-Trump movement’s only hope to save the party might be a Libertarian. According to Julia Azari, a professor of political science at Marquette University, a Trump victory would actually prove worse for the Republican Party in the long run than another Democratic presidency.”
Gary Johnson, a candidate for the 2016 Libertarian Party Presidential nomination, was interviewed on March 19 by CNBC.
“I do believe that the vast majority of the people in this country are libertarian; they just don’t know it yet,” said Mr. Johnson.
