Racin’ Jason Crum is running as a Libertarian candidate for Michigan State Representative for the 104th district, which includes Grand Traverse County.
Jason, former deejay at WKLT, is the father of six children and resides with his wife Shawn in Kingsley. He is currently a blacksmith at HJ Forge, a shop that specializes in forging Damascus Knives. One of his claims to fame is winning the “Forged in Fire” contest on the History Channel.
Jason has already done a series of videos about his candidacy and why he wants to run for State Representative. Basically, he feels that the people in the 104th district deserve “common sense representation,” especially regarding recent actions by our governor.
“For a single person to rule by executive order is not how this country was founded. That is not how this state was founded. It is not within our constitution.”
Jason is running as a Libertarian and member of the Northwest Michigan Libertarian Party. This affiliate was officially recognized last year as part of the Libertarian Party of Michigan.
“The Libertarian party is one that I have always gravitated to. It’s a party based in freedoms and liberty, small government, conservative fiscal positions, more liberal social positions,” he stated. “It’s a nice balance for where I am as a person, and I’ve always related to the Libertarian party.”
Jason will be on the November 3rd ballot, running against Democrat Dan O’Neil and winner of the Republican primary, either Heather Cerone or John Roth.
In recent years, many new Libertarian Party affiliate groups are forming as state party membership has grown, especially among freedom-loving millennials. The Libertarian Party’s goal is to provide voters with options beyond the two-party system. Libertarians believe in limited government, and are considered financially conservative and socially liberal.
