This past Saturday, I went to a luncheon partially hosted by Quincy Tea Party. The Quincy Tea Party does not endorse any candidates but does believe in giving all candidates a public platform to voice their ideas. I listened to Libertarian candidate, Kash Jackson‘s positions on many things, got to speak with him one on one, and found out why he got started in politics.
I heard him speaking with the media, flat-out bringing the issues of the Family court system to light. I am happy to know that there is an advocate for all parents who get alienated from their children. Who also get a bad rap when the state of Illinois is leaching the money out of good parents and labeling them deadbeats when they can’t afford the payments. The fact that this man started his political career because the court systems opened his eyes, makes me relate to him.
Claire Ball, the libertarian running for Illinois’ Comptroller, is an actual accountant. I got to speak with her and our political views match up for the most part. She has a masters in accounting. It was said at the meeting that not one person in Illinois who has held the position of comptroller has been an actual accountant. Which is disturbing considering they’re the ones working with the states’ money. Money that we, the taxpayers, provide.
WGEM reported on the incident but cut MUCH of the Kash interview out! I overheard what he was saying, since I was the woman right behind him in the interview. I listened to him, he came off like just a regular guy, it was great. I personally believe he is one of the best candidate for the job.
God Help Illinois
