Calling all Libertarians! We need good Libertarian Candidates to run for office. See vacancies and deadlines below. If you’re seriously considering a run for office, we would like to speak with you!
Join us at Camarillo Custom Crush, an urban winery, for a fun fundraiser on Thursday August 10. The event will include a wine-tasting with light appetizers and dessert for $15/LPVC members and $20/non-members. Meet at 300 So. Lewis Road in Camarillo (south of 101) between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. All attendees will receive a discount on any bottle wine purchased and will also be eligible to win a raffle prize.
If you are affected by the county’s vast Wildlife Corridor project you will want to attend the quarterly business meeting on Thursday July 20 at 6:30 PM at Marie Callender’s in Camarillo, 185 E. Daily Drive. Lynn Jensen of VC CoLAB (Ventura County Coalition of Labor, Agriculture and Business) will speak from a property owner’s point of view and discuss its effect on property rights and increased regulations. For more information go to http://vcrma.org/planning/plans/Habitat-Connectivity-Wildlife-Movement-Corridors.html. (If you click on the powerpoint presentation and scroll down you will see a map of these corridors.)
Landowners and homeowners near planned Wildlife Corridors will want to meet to fight back against this erosion of property rights. VC CoLab will host and Supervisor Peter Foy will speak Wednesday July 26 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM at Underwood Family Farms, 3370 Sunset Valley Road in Moorpark in the pony paddock area. Proposed regulations target limits on new construction, land use, fencing, and lighting. The LPVC supports CoLab in their efforts to confront this project being promoted by our county and the National Park Service
here are many local races going on in your area in the next year or two years. All too often local races are not contested or are non-partisan and that gives us special opportunities for advancing the Libertarian Party. If you are contemplating a 2018 run, now is the time to lay the foundation. Some states even require that candidates who run in 2018 file paperwork in 2017. So, don’t delay.
The Ventura County Star opines that recalls are only justified in cases like the city of Bell. Just like their opposition to Measure M, The Star’s opinion is once again out-of-step with the sensibilities of voters and seemingly oblivious to Oxnard’s history.
Meet for July’s Liberty and Libations social under the oaks in Topanga Canyon on Saturday July 8. We will bring our own picnics and meet at 1:45 PM to converse with socially tolerant and fiscally responsible-minded friends just before the 3:30 performance, an adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Contact the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum’s Box Office to reserve your seats, ranging in price from $15 (Veterans, teachers, students, etc.) to $38. This is an outdoor theater, so come prepared with sweaters and seat cushions.
Here’s a volunteer opportunity for all Libertarians, especially those who live in Oxnard. The signature drive to recall from office Oxnard Mayor Flynn and Councilmembers Ramirez, Perello and Madrigal has been formally launched and petition gatherers are needed. This activity is on-going. Please see contact information below to offer your time to this project.
Our first event in Ojai means it’s your chance to meet up with fellow Libertarians. We’ll be at the Ojai Cafe Emporium, 108 South Montgomery Street, from 1:45 PM to 3:00 PM on Sunday June 11. If you can, bring one of your favorite Libertarian quotes to discuss. There will be a raffle prize gift for your summer reading list. Enjoy a morning in Ojai and come by and share your thoughts on the issues facing us today. The Ojai Cafe offers both breakfast and lunch and has many bakery items. Please come and bring a friend.
For those members wishing to learn more about the party on a state level you are welcome to attend the upcoming state ExCom meeting on Sunday June 11. It will be held at the state’s southern office, 825 South Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia 91016 and will run from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Scheduled at 2:00 PM will be 2018 convention presentations. Note: Non ExCom attendees participate mainly as observers.
