It was all issues from the moment Libertarian gubernatorial candidate, John Monds, greeted Tea Party supporters at Sweetwater Grille in Rincon on Friday night.
“It’s not rocket science,” he said. “If you get government out of the way, business will thrive. That’s how you create jobs; government doesn’t create any jobs. They can either help businesses or they can hinder them.”
Monds, 45, is the first black gubernatorial candidate to make the general election ballot in Georgia history. Highly active in his community, he reaped more than 1 million votes in 2008 when he ran for Georgia Public Service Commission.
He graduated from Morehouse College with a degree in banking and finance. He and his family live in Cairo, where Monds, a former financial
officer for Lehman Brothers, home-schools his four children and his wife, Dr. Kathaleena Edward Monds, is a professor at Albany State College.
