Voting took place last month to elect new team players for 2015. The new Ventura County Chair is Ken Niemann. Ken is a recent addition to the Libertarian Party. He is a former Republican activist who, in recent years, came to the conclusion that the LP is the ideal home for those embracing decentralization and maximizing autonomy. Last year he served as Chair of the Newsletter Committee. The new Treasurer is Susan Aquino. Susan is a former Chair and was the 2014 Secretary. She has been a Libertarian since the early 90’s and an active volunteer for the past 12 years. Rhonda Scarborough will continue as Events Chair. Rhonda became a member 5 years ago and has been an active volunteer ever since. She has been serving as the Events/Media Chair, helping to keep our happenings on track.
The 2015 Executive Committee met last week to handle logistics for the new year’s transition and to set goals. They confirmed the priorities of electing Libertarians to public office, increasing party registrations and increasing county/state memberships. With a larger core of committee members, the LPVC would be better equipped to do additional outreach, networking and activism. Volunteers are needed to fill the remaining officer and committee positions. All interested are encouraged to apply. Please contact us.
