Ben Carper, candidate for County Council District 23

Carper is running on a platform of local control, individual responsibility and the self determination of the people.

A self-described Jeffersonian conservative, Carper said he believes County Council members should be residents' first point of contact for any issues they may have, from development concerns to road issues.

Carper said he is concerned with overdevelopment coupled with a lack of investment in the county's infrastructure, and he feels that certain councilmembers have been too pro-development.

Carper said his effort as a Jeffersonian conservative is to conserve a constitutional government and uphold personal liberty and freedom.
