Montgomery, May 14 – The Freedom & Liberty Conservatives Political Action Committee (FLCPAC), a grassroots organization of conservatives supporting reform of the Montgomery County government, released their video advertisement for the May 22 Republican Runoff Election. The video concerns both Commissioners Court races in Precincts 2 (Reformer Greg Parker versus Establishment Charlie Riley) and 4 (Reformer Jim Clark versus Establishment James Metts).
FLCPAC has explained its purpose in its mission statement:
“Freedom. The concentration of government power is morally wrong and is only acceptable where free competition doesn’t work. Smaller government makes for greater freedom. Government spending is morally justified only for national security, law enforcement, and infrastructure (where free markets won’t otherwise provide it.)
“Liberty. The Bill of Rights ensures individual liberty. There is no penumbra. Government power comes from the citizens who are the highest level of government. Government officials are public servants. With the limited exception of national security matters, government must be open to public scrutiny at all times.
“Conservatives. “Conservatives” support less government spending and lower taxes. No government official should receive any benefit from government other than reasonable compensation for services directly provided.
“If some take the foregoing beliefs as divisive, that is no concern to us. We agree with Thomas Jefferson that ‘The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.'”
FLCPAC’s officers include Jon Bouche (Chairman), Christian Ehlming (Vice Chairman), Kelli Cook (Secretary), and Maureen Ball (Treasurer), respectively from Commissioners Precincts 3, 4, 1, and 2.
