Delaware Libertarian town councilman Ed Zielinski running for reelection in Elsmere

Ed Zielinski

Ed Zielinski, who switched from the Republican to the Libertarian Party last year, is running for reelection to the Elsmere, Delaware Town Council.

The election will take place on Saturday, April 29.

Mr. Zielinski has fought against all tax increases brought up by the town council, and last year was successful in stopping a tax increase. He also was able to get tax relief for disabled and senior citizens, and has continually pushed for more spending and tax cuts.

He says that Elsmere, which is about one square mile, has annual taxes close to the those for New Castle County, where Elsmere is located.

He also fought, unsuccessfully, the town council’s decision to allow it to borrow up to $20 million, which is 80% of the town’s assets. A referendum had been required for the town council to over $115,000, before the town charter was changed by the council.

    Hrm. Why isn’t he listed on the Candidates page on the Libertarian Party site? It seems odd they’d put up a page about him but not have him be on the place where someone would try to find candidates.

    Thank you for posting this, by the way. I always prefer posts like this, about actual candidates, to posts that are just sociological debates. I’ll take one post about someone running as a Libertarian (or Green or Constitution or American Solidarity or something else) over ten op-eds about whether or not taxation is theft.

    I don’t know if it was my post here that did it or not, but it looks like now they’ve now added Ed Zielinski to their website’s candidate page (along with several other candidates who weren’t previously listed).
