Meet Me at the So Cal LP Conference Feb 25

All Libertarians are invited to a day of speakers celebrating the incredible wins and experiences of the Gary Johnson/Bill Weld 2016 Campaign. The SouthernCalifornia Libertarian Party Conference is in its 8th year and is being held on Saturday, February 25th at Geezer’s in Santa Fe Springs.  Doors open at 11 A.M; tickets are $35.00 and include lunch.

The Conference is a great event held by Libertarian activists for Libertarians. Organizers concentrate on speakers who educate, elevate, and empower Libertarians to be more effective in promoting their causes and candidates. This year, they have assembled the movers and shakers of the Gary Johnson Bill Weld field campaign to tell their stories.

National Regional Field Director Dan Fishman is coming out from Boston to talk about the national campaign’s extensive use of volunteers, how the field effort was organized, and how millions of people got mobilized across the country. Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee, will talk to us about how the party gained advantages due to our strong showing, and what the ballot access gains made in 19 states will mean for us strategically.

California LP Chair Ted Brown will discuss how the campaign will propel the party forward. Jonathan Jaech, the State Field Director for Johnson/Weld and the Southern Vice Chair of the Libertarian Party of California, will emcee the event. Then we will be regaled by tales of action on the street by California Field Directors Boomer Shannon and Robert Imhoff, who will give us all the gritty details of the
campaign. They were the guys who really got their hands dirty setting up websites, opening offices,
rallying volunteers, and running the phone banks that contacted voters in several key states.

Local Candidates Mike Everling, Honor “Mimi” Robson, and Baron Bruno will talk about their campaigns for State Assembly and State Senate. Changes in election law have presented new opportunities and challenges for Libertarian candidates, and understanding the new landscape is an important part of our success. Their experiences will be both entertaining and informative.

The best part of this event will be all of the new relationships that you build. It’s tough being a champion of liberty in California, but with a big group of friends and allies, life is always better. The program and venue are set up to encourage attendees to mix and strengthen their connections.

Geezer’s Restaurant is located near the junction of the 5 and 605 freeways at 12120 Telegraph Road in Santa Fe Springs CA 90670. Their phone is 562-946-3605.
