Below is an article Jeff Knorr recently published on his website:
“Finding middle ground – As an independent I have been trying to educate people throughout Flagstaff about my views and goals. I have met many wonderful people, attended some great events and have been happy to hear many different points of view.
I have been to a Republican Party meeting, a Democratic Party meeting and will be speaking Thursday at a Flagstaff Liberty Alliance meeting. Being an independent provides some challenges as I am not directly affiliated with either major party. At the Republican meeting I was introduced as a city council candidate, interviewed briefly by their videographer and encouraged to return to share my goals and platform. At the Democratic meeting I was not introduced at all. I was acknowledged only as ” an independent candidate who we will allow to stay but who will not be speaking”. There was a table set up for petition signatures and while I was allowed to have my material out a certain member of the group was “hawking “the table and telling people not to sign my petition. At one point I was even mistakenly identified as Jeff Oravits .
I would like to believe in a non partisan election anyone trying to get on the ballot would receive support and be given the chance to earn the citizens votes based on merit and not simply by party affiliation.
I have been told by some people that I can never win running as an independent. I KNOW this isn’t true , it just may be harder. The families and citizens of Flagstaff are interested in solutions not more partisan squabbling.”
