Key Note Speaker: Gary Johnson – 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate

Gary Johnson

Gary Johnson, who has been called the ‘most fiscally conservative Governor’ in the country, served two consecutive terms as  Governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003. Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that public policy decisions should be based on costs and benefits, rather than strict ideology.

Geoffrey J. Neale- National Libertarian Party Chair

Geoffrey Neale served as Chair for the Libertarian Party from 2002 to 2004 and was re-elected to Chair in May 2012. He was a member of the Libertarian National Committee for five terms and served two 2-year terms as the state chair for the Texas Libertarian Party.

In stark contrast to the top-down management of the Democratic and Republican parties, Geoff Neale ran for Chair on a promise to focus the Libertarian National Committee on the needs and wants of party members; to make operations appropriately transparent to members; and to conduct LNC meetings in accordance with the party’s bylaws.

Geoffrey Neale was the Operations Manager for the 2004 Michael Badnarik Libertarian for President campaign, and served as an officer for a 1980 California initiative to restrict the sales tax. In 1988, Neale worked with the Ron Paul Libertarian for President campaign.
