From an article by David A. Farrell published June 22, 2011 in The Picayune Item:
PICAYUNE — While national Republicans and Tea Party activists have been debating the merits of third-party attempts, Pearl River County voters will get a chance to see if a third-party candidate can have a local impact, as Donna Knezevich — who filed to run against incumbent State Rep. Herb Frierson (R-Poplarville) in the race for the House District 106 post — kicked off her political campaign in Picayune on Monday night.
She is the first Libertarian candidate to seek office in local Pearl River County political races.
Knezevich (pronounced key-nez-a-vitch), who lives on a farm with her husband, some of her children and grandchildren near Poplarville, said she chose to run as a Libertarian because both the Republican and Democrat parties have offered citizens on the local, state and national level the same thing: Spending, taxes and debt.
