Franklin County Libertarian Party of Ohio Endorses John Stewart for US Congress, Ohio District 12
US Congress candidate best represents principles and policies of county party platform.
COLUMBUS, OH — US Congress candidate and trucking industry entrepreneur, John Stewart, received the endorsement of the Franklin County Libertarian Party of Ohio for US Congress, Ohio District 12.
The Franklin County Libertarian Party of Ohio voted through their Central Committee to endorse candidates for the 2020 election.
“The cost of living in America is too high. Our rents are too high, our groceries cost too much and our trips to the doctor cost way too much,” said candidate Stewart “Every time we get a raise, we see our gains evaporate; rents, bills, groceries, doctors. Americans get further behind and further in debt. Democrats and Republicans have mismanaged our country for fifty years by adding layers of government. This puts the cost of living out of balance and our country deeper in debt. We must deal with our debt and spending. We must cut the cost of government.”
After a long and successful career in the trucking industry that has benefitted four generations of the Stewart family, John decided to run for US Congress and serve his community. He grew up in Worthington and currently lives in Gahanna with his wife and two dogs. He and Margie have three daughters and two granddaughters. He supports the Libertarian Party and is running as a Libertarian because he believes the two-party system has failed us. The Democrat and Republican parties have grossly mismanaged the finances of the federal government. The economy is shaky from too much intervention. The moral foundation and national character have been weakened. The citizens are being forced to choose from only two approaches to our problems, and both of them are wrong. The country needs a third voice, a voice of restraint, tolerance, and free markets.
