Raleigh, NC September 12, 2016—The Wake County Libertarian Party announced today that Steve Seay has been appointed to replace Brian Irving as the Libertarian candidate for N.C. House District 36. Irving resigned his candidacy late last month after selling his residence and moving outside the district, thus becoming ineligible.
“I am tired of cronyism and those who think they know what's best for the people who are below middle class, the people who live paycheck-to-paycheck” added Seay. “I live, work, and play on the ground level...I know what the people who are marginalized by the actions and policies of the two established parties need and want.”
“Steve Seay has been an advocate for freedom for many years and has graciously agreed to take up the arduous work of being the candidate,” stated WakeLP Vicechair Bruce Basson, also a resident of N.C. House 36. “As a small business owner, musician, and father of four, Steven always has his hands full and now will be working even harder to make a difference in North Carolina. With no lack of talent and work ethic, he was an obvious choice to represent district 36.”
Because Irving’s resignation came so late in the election cycle, it is too late to reprint ballots, and his name will still appear as the Libertarian candidate for N.C. House 36. “However, Board of Elections officials have assured us that votes cast for Mr. Irving will be credited to Mr. Seay,” stated Basson.
