John Monds, Libertarian, to Run for Georgia Governor
Tomorrow, John Monds, who ran for Public Service Commission in 2008, will announce tomorrow his Libertarian candidacy for Georgia Governor.
“During his campaign for Public Service Commission (District 1) in 2008, Monds became the first Libertarian to break one million votes in the United States,” according to a press release obtained by APN. That’s a big deal.
Other 2010 candidates- Democrats: Poythress, Barnes?; Republicans- Cagle?, Handel?, Oxendine?
“It’s difficult to tell the difference between Republicans and Democrats; both want to raise your taxes, waste your money and increase the size and scope of state government,” Monds said.
“We must be competitive in the 21st Century. We must have meaningful tax reform that allows businesses and individuals to thrive, a transportation system that eases congestion without raising taxes, an education system that gives more choices and returns control to the local level, and we need to stop wasting the taxpayers’ money with mandated long term incarceration of individuals for non-violent victimless infractions of the law”
“John Monds, 43, is a graduate of Morehouse College with a degree in Banking and Finance, President of the Grady County NAACP and currently serves on the Grady County Planning Commission,” the release states.
“He resides in Cairo with his wife, Dr. Kathaleena Edward Monds, and four children, Akintunde, Cazembe, Halima and Malik.”
