Libertarian Wendy Jones reaching out to Delaware voters

Posted by Donny Ferguson at

Voters in Delaware’s 19th State Senate District will have two more chances to hear from Libertarian candidate Wendy Jones. Jones is running in the Aug. 3 special election to succeed Senate President Pro Tem Thurman Adams Jr., who died last month from pancreatic cancer.

Jones will appear on Bill Colley’s radio program this Wednesday, at 5:00 p.m. on WGMD, and Jeff Gartman’s radio program on Saturday morning from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. You may listen on the radio, or via the broadcast live from their website.

Jones will also speak with voters on Thursday at the League of Women Voters forum for this special election. All four candidates have bene invited to the event, which will be held at the Sussex County Council Chambers at the Circle in Georgetown.

The 7:00 p.m. event will be broadcast live on the County Council’s webcam, which can be viewed here. Follow the instructions if you need a plug-in to make it work. The audio link is separate from the video link, so you have to click both to see and hear.

Jones will share with voters her plans on several important issues:

Job Creation is top priority. Small businesses create the most jobs. Cut taxes and give business credits to encourage expansion of private businesses with good jobs in Sussex County.

Cut Government by cutting taxes and privatizing. Let private businesses compete to provide the greatest choices and efficiencies for Delawareans.

Health Reform: Government should not be authorized to limit our free choices for our healthcare providers.

Self Defense: Everyone should have the right to self defense and to protect our families. I am a lifetime member of the NRA, and the state representative for the Pink Pistols, advocating self defense for women.

Support School Vouchers: Parents should be free to choose their children’s schools: private, public, parochial, charter, or homeschooling.

Del Pointe: It is immoral and irresponsible for the state to partner with gambling and other special interests, to compete with private businesses in Sussex County. It is unfair for the state to reward a few, politically privileged people at the expense of all ? Delaware’s taxpayers.

    Wendy, come out with support for the Progressive Libertarian Alliance. You’ll have a chance to win. Otherwise, you will almost certainly lose.

    I am confused. I listened to Wendy at the SCORR debate and she was in favor of Del Pointe for all the right Libertarian reasons – job creation, hands-off government, gov should not legislate morals, etc. Now she is against it? She lost my support. Seems like a hail mary to try to beat Joe or an attempt to appease the right wing religious SCORR types. Del Pointe is GREAT for job creation and for the DE taxpayer. They make out the best!!!

    Her latest answer to the News Journal questionnaire explains her views on Del Pointe issue best.

    “It is immoral and irresponsible for government to promote gambling and hospitality services that compete directly with private funded businesses in Sussex County. Most voters in the 19th Senatorial District oppose this state-sponsored project. Christians doubt legislators like Joe Booth for putting his weight on the scales of injustice, called DelPointe.

    Designed to tempt the poor to get-rich-quick fantasies, the odds are stacked against them. Seducing the poor is immoral, impoverishing their dependents. It is unfair for government to reward the few, politically privileged people at the expense of most taxpayers and their businesses.”

    She sees it as the government sponsoring and rewarding political cronies, and feels that the three locations for expanded gambling are enough.
