Libertarian US Congress Candidate Jeff

Kenyan-born lawyer Jeff Matemu is running for the US congress in the state of North Carolina. Matemu is contesting the 2nd congressional district seat in North Carolina on a Libertarian Party ticket.

Matemu, who runs a law firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina, recently told Mwakilishi.com that he chose to run as a Libertarian in order to better serve the people of his congressional district by avoiding party labels that he says have controlled politicians’ decisions.

Matemu says if elected to Congress, he will fight for revitalization of infrastructure including roads, bridges, and waterways. He also plans to fight for affordable college education through the modernization of the Pell Grant program. He will also advocate for the expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit which subsidizes wages for low income earners, as well as for reforms in the criminal justice system.

Another issue that is dear to his heart and that he plans to advocate for in Congress is immigration reform including immigrants rights, saying: “as a Libertarian, I support the rights of all the people all the time. Immigrants are people too and must be protected from unfair and discriminatory laws,” Matemu says.
