A special Thank You to the members and affiliates of the Libertarian Party of Florida
By Vice Chair Omar Recuero
On Wednesday, August 17th, Libertarian Presidential nominee, Gov Gary Johnson held a campaign rally/forum in Miami at Florida International University. This event went off perfectly and even 3 days later proves to be a tremendous success. I was not only in attendance for this historic event, I was a part of an amazing team of people who made this event possible.
I writing this to recognize that this event would not have taken place without the help of these individuals. Alot went on behind the scenes to make the event possible. A big part of it included generous donations and securing FIU, however we needed volunteers. Some of the things needed including coordination(VIP, general public, security), clean up, take donations, signing people up for the campaign and various other duties. So because of how much we love and cherish individual liberty and freedom. And because of how much we support Gary Johnson and all of the great things that has accomplished and will accomplish. We were called upon and without hesitation came together to help put this event together in a short amount of time. Not to mention the various distances that people had to travel from around the state to volunteer.
The volunteer staff:
Region 8 Representative Stacey Selleck
Region 10 Representative Darlene Underwood
Region 13 Representative Karl Dickey
Region 14 Representative Steven Nekhaila
The Chairman – Char Lez Braden
The LPF Secretary – Suzanne Gilmore
At Large Director 1 – Alison Foxall

Various LPF members and supporters including but not limited to Philippe Neptune, Robert Fernandez, Macy John, LuisaMercedes Garcia and Heather Preysz and her daughters.
Overall 11 members of the LPF Executive Committee were also present. The highlight of the night being region 9 Representative George Lebovitz giving two cigars to the Governors to smoke when we get into the debates and smoke both of the other “candidates”.
What an event! What a night! What team of people we have in the LPF! Thank You all so much to everyone and anyone I forgot to mention. Thank You to the state campaign team for letting me help out. If you are reading this and you were not able to come, but you shared, tweeted, instagram, etc the event, Thank You too. I am so glad to be a part of this family and I believe we can accomplish anything when we work together.
