LP Monday Message: fun poll, serious issues

June 21, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Before getting to more serious issues, I'm asking you to take another quick poll on slogans. We picked the top two from our primary poll, and added a new third choice. (Two choices on the ballot just aren't enough!)

Florida Libertarian candidates get on ballot

from the Libertarian Party of Florida:

Libertarian candidate and officeholder Heather Scott

Tennessee Report writes about Heather Scott, who is running for the Tennessee House of Representatives:

Heather Scott is a Libertarian, but she is running as an independent.

From her eight years as a member of the Wilson County Commission, Scott says she’s seen how programs come down from the state and federal government that may or may not be right for a particular county, yet local governments have to enact them and cover the costs that come with them.

Libertarian candidate Alex Snitker excluded from press event

Alex Snitker, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senator in Florida, was excluded from a candidate event held by the Florida Press Association on June 17. Snitker attended the event and spoke against the decision to exclude him. WTSP covered Snitker's comments:

Bob Barr: Financial ‘Reform’ Imperils Consumer Privacy

2008 Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr writes in Roll Call:

There may be a number of reasons to oppose the financial services “reform” legislation passed recently by both houses of Congress and now headed to conference committee to work out differences — its length, its complexity and its many regulatory mechanisms.

Libertarians in the news

The Salisbury (Maryland) Daily Times writes about Libertarian Mike Calpino:

SALISBURY -- Mike Calpino, a Nanticoke resident who says government needs a philosophical makeover, will run against Stevie Prettyman for her Wicomico County Council seat.

"We need to change the way we do government. Trying to be all things for all people is too expensive," Calpino says.

Coverage of Texas Libertarian state convention

The Texas LP held its state convention June 11-13 in Austin.

News 8 Austin writes:

“The main order of the day is to nominate a candidate for governor and other statewide offices. We’re also going to be nominating people for our internal positions and adopting rules,” Texas Libertarian Party spokesperson Robert Butler said.

LP Monday Message: Call for candidates, county chairs, T-shirts

June 14, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

We've received orders for 478 of the $10 Libertarian T-shirts. One Libertarian candidate ordered 100 shirts! What a great gift for volunteers! The deadline is this Wednesday, so order today.

We're listing over 700 Libertarian candidates here. It's still not too late in about half the states to file as a candidate for the November elections.

Still At-Large and Running for Ballot Access!

Dear Friends and Fellow Freedom Seekers,

At the 2010 National Libertarian Party Convention in St. Louis, I was returned (with your help!) to the LNC as an At-Large member.  Since I am YOUR representative, please feel free to contact me with your issues.

Moving Forward

This, my first contribution to the LP blog, will be short and to the point. In St. Louis we elected a strong LNC, with Libertarians representing several major philosophical and strategic perspectives. The one thing we all agree upon, I believe, is that we want our party to grow and our ideas to gain wider acceptance among the American electorate. We have many fine candidates for public office this year, including 17 – so far – for U.S.
