Libertarian Rex Bell Seeking Office
February 13, 2008 - A Hagerstown Libertarian is seeking his party's nomination to run against Republican incumbent Tom Saunders for the Indiana House of Representatives District 54 seat in the November election.
"I told Representative Saunders after he had won the 2006 election that if they didn't get the property tax mess straightened out I would be back in 2008," Libertarian Rex Bell said in a press release issued last week. "They've had two years, and while they are trying to do some shuffling in the way they collect taxes, I can't see that they are cutting any spending that will result in any actual savings to the taxpayers. Cutting spending is the only way to cut taxes. Our current legislators apparently aren't willing to make those cuts. I'm running for office to give people a way to vote for lower taxes and the complete elimination of property taxes."
If nominated by the Libertarians, this would be the second consecutive race that Bell, a 55-year-old self-employed home builder, has run against Saunders. He mounted an unsuccessful challenge against the Lewisville incumbent in 2006, a race that also included Democrat challenger David Sadler of New Castle.
Bell and his wife, Susan, are the parents of three children and have three granddaughters. He currently serves on the Hagerstown Plan Commission, the Hagerstown Board of Zoning Appeals, and the new Castle Area Vocational School Building Trades Advisory Board. Bell has posted his positions on a variety of issues affecting citizens of District 54, which includes portions of Henry, Randolph and Wayne counties, on his website, www.electRexBell.com.
