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.
We have five Libertarians that will be on the November ballot for State Assembly seats: Brandon Nelson in the 4th Assembly District; Justin Quigley in the 21st Assembly District; Chris Stare in the 51st Assembly District; Autumn Browne in the 69th Assembly District, and I’ll be on the ballot for the 70th Assembly District. We also have candidates for other local races throughout the state, including Aaron Starr running for Mayor of Oxnard and Jeff Hewitt who came in a very close second in his race for Riverside County Supervisor in the June Primary and is running the most exciting and promising race for a Libertarian in the county!
So now is the time we all need to help these candidates get our message out to the voters and win! The Libertarian Party of California Candidate Support Committee has already helped each of the Assembly candidates get there Candidate Statement on the sample ballots, so their message will go out to all the registered voters in those counties; but there’s a lot more we need to do, so please consider donating generously. You can make a donation at https://clpcsc.nationbuilder.com/2018_candidate_statement_fundraiser.
And finally, we have started planning our 2019 Convention which will be held in Concord California at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and early bird packages as well as discounted room pricing are available now! In addition we’ve decided to do something fun; we are letting the members decide on what the theme of the Convention will be. You can buy your tickets and vote on the theme you like best, or add your own at https://ca.lp.org/convention/.
That’s all for now, but I will be announcing more in the very near future, so please stay tuned.
Yours in Liberty,
Chair, Libertarian Party of California
I encourage Libertarians to run good, quality campaigns for any office, from US Senate to Dog Catcher. Injecting libertarianism into public policy, wherever and whenever possible, is the goal of this organization, and how we win the long-term game for liberty."
