Libertarians field 9 candidates in DC - the largest and most diverse slate of any party

Seven Libertarians should appear on the April primary ballot in DC in 7 different races.

 The Libertarians are a larger slate than any other party except the Democrats, and a more diverse slate than any other party (including Democrats).  (At least 3 Libertarian candidates are immigrants or have an immigrant parent.)

Pranav Badhwar, Ward 6 City Council seat.  Badhwar, the father of two school age children, is a decade long resident of Capitol Hill and a marketing manager for a telecommunications company.

Frederick Steiner, City Council At Large.  Steiner  works in IT and lives in NE DC in Ward 4.  A new dad, he has an MBA from George Mason University.

Sara Jane Panfil, Delegate to Congress.  Panfil graduated from Columbia University in 2010 and works as a paralegal.

Ryan Sabot, Ward 3 City Council seat.  Sabot is a student at American University and chair of the DC Libertarian Party.

Martin Moulton, Shadow Representative to Congress.   Moulton was a 2012 Ron Paul alternate, and is a Dartmouth graduate and active cyclist.  Moulton is an education advocate who lives in the Shaw neighborhood. He is originally from California where he attended public, private and parochial schools. He works in the tech sector. A life long cyclist/non-driver, he serves on the board of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. Moulton has served as a consultant to KIPP DC in its community outreach.

John Daniel, Shadow Senator.  Daniel, a resident of Logan Circle, is a start up entrepreneur and Israeli immigrant.

Pranav Badhwar. Ward 6 City Council

My wife and I are devoted to this city where our children were born and attend school. I create and launch wireless products for a living, and understand the hard work needed to effectively deliver services to the public. I want to see DC flourish, and envision a city that protects rights over your body, property, and associations. A city which generates opportunities for the neediest, where men and women can thrive as small business owners, where people have affordable housing and transportation, and where our youth attend effective schools and are no longer jailed for non-violent drug offences.

Frederick Steiner, City Council At Large

I've lived in the DC area for 10 years, after the birth of my daughter I learned I could no longer remain aloof from the community I lived in. I learned that everyone has a shared interest in things like good schools and safe streets, that vibrant neighborhoods create opportunities for all, that transparency and openness is a requirement for good governance. I needed to do my part in the attainment of those ideals. I have no grand political aspirations, and self funded my campaign so I don't owe anyone anything. I'm just a person trying to do the right thing. 

Bruce Majors, Mayor

I have lived in DC since 1980.  I have watched it become morbidly obese, with a swollen $9 billion dollar budget, that just like real obesity leads to many diseases: corruption and cronyism, high rents and no affordable housing, as the politically connected line up for your tax dollars.  The DC political class needs to be put on a diet, and opportunities need to be legalized for those who are not federal lawyers or lobbyists with 6 figure incomes taken from the taxpayer.  Your vote for Libertarians starts these needed changes.
