Joe Bishop-Henchman, currently Chair of the Libertarian National Committee, has informed the LNC of his decision to step down from his position. The LNC has accepted his resignation.
Mr. Ken Moellman, Vice Chair, will assume the role of Acting Chair. He issued the following statement:
“The Libertarian Party has experienced great progress in recent years and I look forward to playing a more active role in that progress. Our first state legislator in nearly 20 years was elected to office. We’ve smashed fundraising goals, have made great strides in membership, and we consistently achieved 50-state ballot access. We remain a viable option for disenfranchised voters from the two big parties and I look forward to continuing the forward momentum together over the next year.”
Party leadership always changes over time, but one thing remains the same. The LNC and Libertarian Party will be a place for all Libertarians to continue to advocate for things like criminal justice reform, economic freedom, civil liberties, and generally, a world set free in our lifetime. These have been, and will remain, our highest priorities.
