Libertarian party nominates Bill Slantz for 8th Congressional District

From the Southeast Missourian newspaper:

BENTON, Mo.  — Lacking the suspense of the GOP meeting, the Libertarian Party’s meeting to nominate its candidate for the 8th Congressional District special election created an opportunity for the party’s man to talk policy and politics.

Bill Slantz was unanimously nominated Saturday to be his party’s candidate in a June 4 special election to replace former U.S. representative Jo Ann Emerson.

Before the meeting at the Scott County Courthouse in Benton, Slantz fielded questions posed by Missouri Libertarian Party executive director Greg Tlapek and the Southeast Missouri State University Student Libertarian Association.

Slantz said his views incorporated “the best” of the Democratic and Republican parties, and he would encourage resolutions to bring the polarized parties closer.

“It is our [the government’s] responsibility to find a common ground,” Slantz said. “Think of it like a relationship with a friend; you don’t agree on everything, but you find ways to get along and work together.”
