Letter from State Chair

I know that the election is only 10 days away and that's where everyone's mind is at as we have several exciting campaigns in the state, which include:

Brandon Nelson, 4th State Assembly District (http://nelson4assembly.com/); Justin Quigley, 21stState Assembly District (https://quigleyforassembly.com/); Chris Stare, 51st State Assembly District (https://www.votestare.com/); Autumn Browne, 69th State Assembly District (http://www.autumnbrowne.com/); and me, Honor "Mimi" Robson, 70th State Assembly District (https://www.honorrobson.com/).

We also have some incredibly exciting non-partisan races which include Jeff Hewitt for Riverside County Supervisor, 5th District (https://www.votehewitt.com/), Aaron Starr for City of Oxnard Mayor (https://www.starrforoxnard.com/), and John Inks for Mountain View City Council (https://www.electinks.com/); all are strong Libertarians who have a great chance of winning!

It's not too late to support these candidates, as there are still several last minute expenses, so please give if you can!

Spreading Our Message at a Local College Forum

The Political Science Club of Ventura College held a political party forum on October 10th, with representatives from the Libertarian, Republican, Democratic, and Green Parties. More than 50 students attended the event, organized by Michela Lee, club president.
LPVC Secretary William Westmiller gave a 15-minute overview of party history and positions, followed by a lengthy Q&A session that covered a wide range of current political issues. The LP and Green parties offered tables of literature and information. Westmiller distributed a list of positions that LPVC has taken on state and local ballot propositions.

The event is held annually. Last year, Westmiller and LPVC Chair Robin Westmiller were the only panel participants. This year, county chairs of the GOP, DEM and Green parties also participated. Questions from students largely avoided hot topics like the Kavanaugh confirmation and Trump's style, focusing on issues like immigration, drug laws, foreign wars, and general party principles.
Opportunities like this are vital for our Party to grow, especially among young people. If you would like to participate in future outreach events, please let us know by clicking on the volunteer button above.

Moorpark Country Days A Success

moorparkdays20181006.jpgOn Saturday, October 6, the Libertarian Party of Ventura County hosted a voter registration booth at the Moorpark Country Days celebration. It was great to get out into the community and hear what people are thinking during these days of political frustration. As we chatted with people of various political views, it was clear that all would like to see some change, and many expressed appreciation for our presence even if they weren't registered Libertarians.

Constitution Day

Monday September 17th is Constitution Day! Put up your flag to commemorate the signing of the Constitution by our libertarian founders in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787. Presented to the public on 9-28-1787, it was not ratified by the states until almost a year later on 6-21-1788 when it became effective. This short inspired treatise establishes that government's purpose is to serve its citizens. Let's cherish and safeguard this constitutional republic with the work we do in the Libertarian Party.

Letter from State Chair

With the November General Election fast approaching, there are a lot of exciting things happening in the Libertarian Party of California that I want everyone to be aware of. Since the beginning of the year the number of registered Libertarian voters has increased by 1.2% while the registered Republicans have decreased by 1.2%, and the registered Democrats have decreased by 0.5%. The Libertarian Party is the ONLY party that has experienced growth this year out of ALL the parties! So now is the time we really need to support our candidates.

LP Registration

Alaska, Colorado, Nevada...California? What do those first three states have in common? They have reached the 1% threshold for registered Libertarians. Could we be next? Only if each county makes an effort to reach its 1%. Currently, Ventura County has 3440 registered Libertarians, or .79% of the 433,496 total registered voters in the county. We need to reach 4334 registered LP voters, an addition of 894 liberty leaning independents. Can't be done anytime soon? Well, think back and remember how the Gary Johnson campaign added 1000 to our rolls.

Repeal the Gas Tax

GasTaxLogo-300x202_(1).pngReform California, headed by Carl DeMaio, is working hard to repeal the latest gas tax. Knowing we already pay one of the highest gas tax rates in the nation, he and his organization collected nearly one million signatures to get this proposition on the ballot for November.  This is a big opportunity for the Libertarian Party to make some noise and align ourselves with others who share our concerns about California's legislators. Those in opposition are citing doom and gloom if this proposition passes, but it's another "tea party" situation. There's plenty of money to fix our roads; it's just not going where it should. Make a commitment to get this proposition passed. Go to the website for more information: gastaxrepeal.org. Get on the mailing list. Purchase a lawn sign. Slap on a bumper sticker or, with permission, put the sticker on a gas pump. Spread the word. Contribute. eform California, headed by Carl DeMaio, is working hard to repeal the latest gas tax.
