Posted in IPR comments (and forwarded by me to LNC list):
I would like to submit my name for nomination as candidate for the LNC at-large position and to affirm my willingness to serve.
Name: Dr. Marc Allan Feldman
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am seeking the open LNC at-large position and will commit to attending the meetings at my own expense
I joined the National Libertarian Party in 2010 and I am a Life Member
I have never been a member of any other political party. I found that the major parties lacked principles and could not move the US in the right direction. I served as a candidate for Ohio Attorney General in 2010, enabling the LP to run a full slate of statewide candidates.
I am a practicing physician. I have been on the physician staff of the Cleveland Clinic for 14 years. Previously, I was on the faculty at Johns Hopkins for 11 years.
I have an MD degree and a Masters in Health Policy and Management from Johns Hopkins. I hope to represent and attract new LP members from the large segment of the voting public dissatisfied with the current major parties. I have the resources of funds and flexibility of time to fulfil the requirement of LNC participation. I try to be effective and brief in my communications.
I have no known potential conflicts of interest.
Prior to this, there have been nine candidate statements sent to the Libertarian National Committee’s Chairman and Secretary to fill an open At-Large Representative position. The opening became available when Wayne Allyn Root resigned from the Libertarian Party this month to return to the Republican Party. At this writing, it appears the decision will be made by the other members of the LNC at their meeting in Washington DC, November 17 and 18. There was a motion made by Ruth Bennett to make the selection via e-mail prior to the meeting, however, the measure failed.
A message to LP members interested in applying for the position can be found here .
One Libertarian party member from Delaware wrote up what he wanted to see in the replacement, which was posted as an article here on IPR: Dr. Steve Newton on LNC At-Large Opening.
Here are the candidates and their statements, in alphabetical order:

IPR will continue to monitor this race, and will add any new candidates or information as we receive it.
