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

LP Lee – JoAnn and Co.

LP Hillsborough – Susan Stanley

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.

Florida Libertarians offer best likely alternative to Trump and Clinton

This morning, March 16, 2016, Floridians are waking up to the realization Donald Trump has won the Florida Republican Primary and Hillary Clinton as the winner in the state’s Democratic Party Primary. The Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF) is offering Floridians credible alternatives for those not interested in voting for Trump or Clinton in the November 2016 presidential election.

Char-Lez Braden, Chair of the Libertarian Party of Florida, said, “We are proud to offer Floridians far better alternatives to the two old party candidates and welcome voters to see which candidates are most in line with their personal value system. Floridians, as well as Americans, are fed-up with establishment politics and are seeking better alternatives to lead the nation.” The national Libertarian Party will select their presidential nominee at their national convention happening in Orlando, Florida on May 28, 2016.

The top field of Libertarian presidential candidates are Dr. Marc Allan Feldman, Governor Gary Johnson, John McAfee, and Austin Petersen. The candidates will appear in the first nationally televised Libertarian Party Presidential Debate on April 1, 2016 via Fox Business Network at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. Dr. Feldman is a well-respected physician at the Cleveland Clinic owner of Openivo, Inc. Johnson is a two-term Governor of New Mexico and a self-made millionaire businessman. He was the Libertarian nominee in 2012 and received 1.3 million votes. McAfee is well known as the developer of the first commercial anti-virus program which bears his name. Petersen used to work at Libertarian Party national headquarters and now runs the popular new magazine, The Libertarian Republic.

Many of the Libertarian Party Presidential candidates will be attending and speaking at the Libertarian Party of Florida’s state convention in West Palm Beach, Florida in April 2016.

While the number of registered voters for the Florida Democratic and Republican candidates declined from 2014 to 2015, the number of registered Libertarian voters has increased. This further shows that Florida voters are moving away from the two older parties and move to the growing Libertarian movement. In a 2015 Gallup survey, 27 percent of Americans identified themselves as being libertarian.

About the Libertarian Party of Florida: The Libertarian Party of Florida values human life and the right of all people to live in peace. All members of the LPF are required to declare “I hereby certify that I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals” thus putting the LPF far out in front of any other party’s commitment to nonviolent political action.
