He was active on both Moorpark and CSUN campus for libertarian and Constitutional ideals. Austin interned in Washington DC and is now a Sub for LAUSD and considering Law School.








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. At the time, 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 five 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.
