Libertarian runs against Danny Short For 39th Rep. District Seat
Libertarian candidate for the 39th Representative District, James Brittingham would like to see change in the way things are done if elected to the Delaware State House.
Running against entrenched Republican Danny Short doesn’t bother Brittingham much. Being a Libertarian and Chairman of the Sussex County Libertarian Party keeps him busy, and he has plenty of energy to spare.
“As a Libertarian, I am fiscally conservative and socially tolerant. People should be free to do as they wish, as long as they don’t cause harm to one another,” he said. “Libertarians believe in making government smaller so that people can have more freedom.”
Brittingham has not accepted corporate sponsorship or “special interest” money on his campaign. “I have no corporate sponsors pulling my strings. I’m just an average hard working American, just like you,” he said.
If elected, Brittingham would introduce legislation to set term limits for state legislators. He would seek to reduce repressive regulation and become more business and job friendly. He would also seek to end Common Core and High Stakes testing in our public schools, giving control back to the parents, teachers, and local school boards.
Eliminating gross receipts tax and governmental spending on everything that is non-essential are high on Brittingham’s list of priorities. If elected, he would also seek to end “Midnight Madness” in the General Assembly and redefine the role of Delaware’s Sheriffs.
“I have no voting record on bills and I have no corporate sponsors pulling my strings. If you’re tired of the government telling you what you can and cannot do, while bullying you around, I urge you to cast your vote for me on November 8th. Together we can restore liberty and prosperity to the First State,” he said.
