Being an off-year election season, we turn our focus towards local
issues and, since all politics is local in the end, what better place
to start than a change at City Council?
That change starts with electing a candidate who believes in the ideals
of limited government, being a good steward of the public treasury and
public trust, and the importance of community involvement in solving
Doug Burlison garnered almost half the vote in his previous City Council
bid in 2004, against an incumbent with more resources. Two of his Council
platform issues have turned into reality -- an "Adopt-A-Stream" program,
similar to the street cleanup model and, more importantly, his drive to
have the city of Springfield audited by the State Auditors Office is
currently underway, a task that has never been done in the entire
history of the city.
As a candidate for the 7th Congressional seat, Doug challenged business-
as-usual Republicans and Democrats by offering the public a no-nonsense,
liberty-oriented choice. Now Doug brings with him, to this non-partisan,
non-paid Council seat, the core beliefs of the Libertarian Party --
limited government, fiscal responsibility, and the accountability and
responsiveness to the public that ALL public servants should have.

information. Help put a true champion of liberty in local politics.
