I appreciate all 8,375 of my neighbors who voted for me. I ended up with 4.14% of the vote in a contest with seven candidates.

 
This is the first time I have run for office since 2010. I raised less than $500. I spent less than a thousand and I have over $400 left over. I managed my own campaign. I put up my own website. I managed my own social media. I put out every LP yard sign by myself. I did not receive a dime from a registered Libertarian living in Cabarrus County.

 
Am I complaining? Absolutely not!
Am I disappointed? Not at all! I am happy, pleased and pumped.
I worked my ass off, by myself and I kicked ass!

Why are you the best candidate?

I am the only truly independent candidate. My only special interest is to serve the citizens of our county. I am the only local candidate, for any office, with the courage to truly tackle our tragic opioid crisis. Twenty-nine states and D.C. has some sort of legal cannabis (marijuana). Where there is safe access to legal cannabis, opioid-related overdoses have dropped by at least 25 percent. Some states are allowing doctors to prescribe cannabis in lieu of opioid painkillers. I call on the county to declare a public health emergency and immediately decriminalize cannabis and allow patients to grow their own medicine. Cabarrus County should be on the cutting edge of compassion by protecting our God-given right to self-medicate ourselves with natural and organic plants. The war on cannabis is a war on Nature and Humanity and anyone who doesn’t believe this is ignorant, anti-science and downright wrong!

My answers for the Cabarrus Magazine’s October Issue Candidates Profile…

 

Q: What is the single biggest issue facing Cabarrus County? What is your plan to address that issue?

A: The opioid crisis. I call for the county to declare a public health emergency and immediately decriminalize cannabis (marijuana) in the county. In states with access to safe, legal cannabis, opioid-related deaths have dropped at least 25 percent. Cabarrus County should be on the cutting edge of compassion and defend its citizens’ God-given right to self-medicate safely.
