Vice Chair/Media Chair - Teresa Cvach

Teresa has been a registered and active voting Libertarian for over a decade. She was first introduced by Susan Cvach, who ran as the Libertarian candidate for Coconino County Board of Supervisor. Teresa passionately advances the fact that our nation's spending and increasing debt by Republicans and Democrats cannot continue and strongly pushes for the rights of the individual. Her favorite book is The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.


Secretary - Austin Jackson

Treasurer - Susan Aquino

Susan Aquino stopped worrying about what others would think and joined the Libertarian Party in the early 90’s. The main pull for her was minimizing the sense of entitlements, and nurturing responsibility for one’s own life. Susan did not agree with every LP issue, but the platform was still miles above the other parties. Susan is a former LPVC Chair and Secretary, has attended many state conventions and four national conventions. She is retired from the US Postal Service, Human Resources division, and also spent her later years as a small town Postmaster. You’ll find her experiencing the private sector in her retirement job as a grocery cashier.


Committee Chairs

Newsletter Chair - Dan O'Shea

OSheaD_headshot.jpgDan recently joined the local Libertarian Party in 2017 after decades of admiration of Ron Paul and his eloquent positions on issues promoting citizen freedom and our Constitutional agreement. And seeing that major candidates in the Democratic and Republican parties have long been compromised. He especially sees our dishonest scam of a money system as the core of so much destruction in this country with a justice system unable to deal with the pervasive conflicts of interest that exist. He handles social media, actively posting on the Libertarian Party of Ventura County website while having nightly dreams of ending the Fed.
