James Weeks was born in Michigan, and has lived in Livingston County virtually all of his life. From a young age James always loved freedom. He has dedicated his life to achieving a free society, free from an omnipotent state that seems to wish to squeeze every last drop of freedom out of our lives. James advocates for individual liberty and believes freedom means the power to people to control their own destinies. A free society based on individual rights and voluntary consent. For all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives; they have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live do the same.
Why James is Running
James Weeks is running Livingston County Sheriff because he is passionate about reversing the trend of the ever worsening state of law enforcement in the county he grew up in. Over the course of his lifetime James Weeks has seen the LCSD change from the friend next door that helped you when you needed him into a paramilitary task force of intimidation. Under Bob Bezotte and Mike Murphy's failed administration we have witnessed an unprecedented erosion of individual liberties, an increasingly militaristic attitude towards law enforcement, and a reckless disregard for fiduciary responsibility.
