I got the scoop on this! The Libertarian candidate for Governor of Virginia is coming to Mechanicsville! And King William, too!
Here’s Sarvis’ impressive bio from his website:
Robert Sarvis, 36, is a native of Virginia. He was born at Fairfax Hospital, grew up in West Springfield, and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology. He has earned degrees in mathematics from Harvard University and the University of Cambridge, a J.D. from N.Y.U. School of Law, and a Master’s in economics from George Mason University. He has a diverse professional background, with experience as an entrepreneur and small-business owner, a software engineer and mobile-app developer, a math teacher, and a lawyer. Rob is married to a pediatrician from Greenville, MS, with whom he is raising two beautiful children in Annandale, Virginia.
On August 1, Sarvis will be the guest of the Mechanicsville Tea Party at their 7 pm meeting at the American Legion hall. The MTP meets in the ladies auxiliary meeting room.
On August 8, Sarvis will speak to the King William Tea Party – 7 pm at their usual meeting place – the King William Government Center.
This is the most serious Libertarian effort in the Commonwealth. Come out and meet Robert Sarvis. You have an alternative: Sarvis recently got 7% in a Democrat leaning poll (Here it is). He WILL be on the Virginia ballot. The blog and I have endorsed the GOP candidate but I promised to give the Libertarians good and fair attention at this blog.
