Chris Coughlin Wins Johns Creek, Georgia Council Seat

Chris Coughlin(R) celebrates winning a seat on the Johns Creek City Council with EJ Moosa (L)

Chris Coughlin(R) celebrates winning a seat on the Johns Creek City Council with EJ Moosa (L)

Libertarian Chris Coughlin won one of the two runoff elections he was competing for in Johns Creek, Ga.  While he lost the full term seat by less than 180 votes, he won the stub seat and will serve through the end of 2015.

Coughlin set out to prove that you could run a smarter, more efficient campaign using analysis techniques he applies in his day job.  And despite some doubt among supporters, he turned up the heat on his opponent, who outspent him by a margin of 12 to 1.

“I set out to prove that at the local level, you can compete by campaigning intelligently, especially if you have a principled campaign.  I wanted to bring some fiscal analysis to Johns Creek because I think it will lead to better outcomes for all residents”, Couglin said.

“I also hope that my desire to cut business taxes so that we can improve our business environment for all businesses within Johns Creek will be acted upon by this City Council going forward”, Coughlin added.

Chris Coughlin is Georgia’s only elected Libertarian at the present time.

Coughlin is also planning to work and help others at the local levels get elected. “Open races are the place for Libertarians to establish themselves”, he stated.  “Limiting government to their defined responsibilities and spending tax dollars as efficiently as possible are concepts people do understand”, said Coughlin.

Please visit Couglin’s Facebook page and congratulate Chris Coughlin.  His hard work and determination deserve a resounding round of applause.

Johns Creek Drones Up

(This  topic was submitted by Winston, a local libertarian in Johns Creek)

https://johnscreekpost.com/police-drone-coming-to-the-sky-near-you/

Winston posted some comments at a local blog which caught my eye and my brain.  It really got me to thinking on the militarization going on around us at all levels.

Would the Federal Government be able to continue to expand its monitoring of us without the help of local governments?  Why are local governments so willing to do the heavy lifting for the Federal government? [Read more…]

Watch Chris Coughlin in the Last Candidate Debate before the December 1, 2015 Runoff

Chris Coughlin is upsetting the status quo in Johns Creek, Georgia. During the last candidate debate (where both his opponents chose not to show up), both Chris Coughlin and Stephanie Endres shined as they answered the tough questions on the governance at the local levels.

When you understand the principles of what you believe, and you are not just saying what you think the electorate wants to hear, you can actually connect with voters.

I watched the audience’s attention and reactions to this entire debate.  The answers provided were that which we believe: Lower Taxes, Smaller Government, More Freedom.

We encourage you to watch and see if you do not agree that Coughlin hit the ball out of the park.  And these were not soft ball questions.  There were plenty of curves and fastballs.

If you know anyone in Johns Creek, be sure to encourage them to support BOTH of these candidates.
