Libertarians will be at some upcoming events to promote the cause of Liberty. On June 25-26, the Politicon conference will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center. This is the “unconventional political convention” which should draw politically-minded people from across the political spectrum. The Libertarian Party will have a large booth there. Come join us.
The California State Fair is coming up from July 8 to July 24 at the Cal Expo Fairgrounds in Sacramento. The Libertarian Party will have a booth at the fair, and this is a major undertaking that should bring our party and our views to the attention of tens of thousands of fair attendees. Volunteers are needed for any and all of those dates, at all times of the day and evening. Contact Mark Hinkle at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
We have had a small party office in Sacramento for several years, and this office is closing as of June 30. For now, our mailing address will remain the same. We expect to have another Northern California office in the near future. But the big news is that we have a new party office in Southern California that will open soon. The location is a small office building in Monrovia, a town two cities east of Pasadena. This is a great location, and we expect to have regular staffing. This will work out quite well for the upcoming campaign season.
Our state party membership has grown slightly, but not nearly enough. So we will be engaged in more aggressive membership recruitment during the next few months. Not only should our former members re-join us now, but there are so many other Californians upset with their “choices” in the other parties, that we can expect to attract as well. To help with this effort, we will have an online newsletter starting up shortly, to be edited by Elizabeth Brierly of San Jose, who is also one of the editors of national LP News. Members should see the first one in June.
