LP Monday Message: Send Tax Day Feedback

April 19, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

If you participated in a Tax Day protest event, I'd like to hear about it from you. I'd especially like you to send me a few high-quality digital Tax Day photos.

Below are some things you can tell me:

1. Did you hand out our "take-a-look" flyer? Approximately how many? If you modified it, please send me your new version too.

2. If you handed out other materials, what were they, and about how many of each did you hand out?

Libertarian Party makes the ballot in North Dakota

Several North Dakota outlets have published this April 12 AP story:

The Libertarian Party will have its own column on North Dakota's June primary ballot.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger on Monday approved petitions from Libertarian backers asking for a separate column on the ballot. Jaeger says the petitions had more than the 7,000 signatures that state law requires.

Before last Friday's filing deadline, Libertarian candidates filed to run for the U.S. Senate, state tax commissioner and three seats in the North Dakota Legislature.

New York LP chair offers tips on getting press coverage

from New York LP chair Chris Edes:

Get free media time. Get involved in your local Tea Party, then call the media and say you're available for interviews.

I was interviewed by the local PBS affiliate regarding the upcoming Tea Party. So was the county CFL coordinator.

As April 15 approaches I expect to do more interviews with local media. First you get one interview. Then, you call the other media up and say "I was interviewed by such-and-so media outlet, and I want to let you know I'm available for interview with you as well."

Convention Early Bird extension to 4-12: Boortz moved, Munger added

[April 7 update: Boortz will not be speaking at the LP Convention.]


The Convention Committee has extended the Early Bird pricing until April 12. Part of this is due to confusion and mixed messages over which speakers are scheduled for when. Our speaker lineup continues to evolve and is always subject to change. One recent change is that Neal Boortz has been moved from the Sunday evening banquet dinner speaker position. We do expect Mr. Boortz to speak in a different time slot.
