A dozen of us had a great time at the Election Night Party. Applebee’s Restaurant in Camarillo was a very good venue as we had a room and a TV all to ourselves. An alcoholic beverage was in order for most of the attendees as we watched the unexpected results. It was great to see Johnson’s and the Libertarian Party’s names up there along with the two other “major” parties. That was a first.
So now I’m clearing out some unused bumper stickers and buttons. It’s hard to accept the fact that Gary’s campaign is over. If you drive past a yard sign please pick it up or email us as to its whereabouts so we can take care of it. The cities seem to have sent out a cleanup crew immediately after the election which has made our job easier, but there may still be some out there.
We’ll be closing down the dedicated Gary Johnson meetup and facebook pages. Of course the LPVC will still maintain a meetup and facebook of their own in addition to the website. Remember that you are all always invited to send in blogs or outreach ideas for posting.
A warm thank you goes out to all the Gary Johnson volunteers who took part in a variety of activities spreading his name recognition throughout the county. Sometimes I wondered why we still hadn’t broken through to the next level, but I’ve got to believe that everything we did helped us for next time. And thank you to all the new contacts picked up along the way. Even if we did not see you at any of the rallies, it’s good to know there are lots more friends of liberty in the county than we knew before this election. We hope that you will stay in touch with the Libertarian Party and make it your home.
