Georgia governor race: Libertarian candidate Ted Metz proposes lower tax rates, legalized marijuana and more
by Sherry Liang
At the height of a heated political climate between Democrats and Republicans, Libertarian Ted Metz is looking to make a name for himself in the upcoming election for governor of Georgia.
Inserting himself on the ballot between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp, Metz believes his passion in preserving and promoting liberty in Georgia establishes him as the most qualified candidate for governor.
A former Republican, Metz has held offices as the 39th precinct chair and third vice chair of the 13th District in the GOP. Allocating much of his time to pursuing a higher education, Metz has studied at colleges across Georgia, including the University of Georgia, with majors ranging from business management to biology and organic chemistry.
While currently semi-retired, Metz has devoted his time to advocating for the Libertarian Party.
“I devised the three pillars of my campaign to be equality, tranquility and prosperity,” Metz said. “Prosperity is basically relating to jobs, decent wages and that sort of thing. In order to have prosperity, you have to have a good business environment, so that’s how the economy and jobs tie in.”..
