Doug Burlison, Springfield Missouri Libertarian, has filed his petition
to the Springfield City Clerk's office to be placed on the ballot as a
candidate for City Councilmember, General Seat C.
This is his second run for the Springfield City Council. In April 2005 he
ran a competitive race with broad support and received 45.62% of the vote.
Burlison, born in Springfield in 1964, has been active in the local
community for many years. His latest accomplishment was
initiating the audit of the City of Springfield by the State Auditor's
Office. With help from other citizens, over seven thousand signatures
were collected to bring the audit into action. Auditing of the city is
still in process, but over $1 million dollars has already been
discovered missing from the Springfield Municipal Court.
A former U.S.
Army Sergeant, Burlison is working to maintain a city government which
is accountable to the citizens of Springfield and keeping their
interests the highest priority while preserving fiscal responsibility.
With a win in April Doug Burlison would not be the only Libertarian
City Council Member in Missouri. Libertarian Mike Bozarth won a seat on
the St. Joseph City Council in the April 4th 2006 election.
