We need candidates to run as Libertarians for Congress and for the State Legislature.
Members of the Libertarian Party held at least 26 Tax Day protests across the country throughout the weekend leading up to April 15. Each protest was inspired by the Libertarian idea that all people have the right to keep their own wealth and possessions. “All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor,” the Libertarian Party platform states. “We call for the repeal of the income tax and the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution.”
The Libertarian Party of California held its 2019 convention in Concord earlier this month (April 5-7). Delegates came from all over the state to exchange views, vote for new officers, and make changes to the party bylaws and platform.
The newly-elected state officers are:
Chair - Honor “Mimi” Robson
Vice Chair - Kenneth Brent Olsen
Northern Area Coordinator - Brandon Nelson
Central Area Coordinator - Justin Quigley
Southern Area Coordinator - Wendy Hewitt
Treasurer - Steve Haug
Secretary - Paul Vandelleham
