Libertarian Party of Michigan State Convention Held in Grand Rapids

From the Libertarian Party of Michigan website: 

State Convention in Grand Rapids, Saturday June 15
Film: Alongside Night at the same location on Friday, June 14

The 2013 LPM Convention has come and gone, and we will be writing up a report for this productive and enjoyable event by the end of the week (June 21, 2013). Every event came off to great effect, the film Alongside Night on Friday was entertaining and hopeful, platform and bylaws went smoothly, along with election of officers and a few important resolutions.

The new leadership consists of Mary Buzuma, chair; Steve Mace, vice-chair; Jim Fulner, secretary; Kim Moore, treasurer. The five new members of the central committee are Denee Rockman-Moon, Brad Wheelock, Tim Keirnan, Chris Sharer, and Scotty Boman–if memory serves me correctly. And the new judicial committee seats Bill Hall, Emily Salvette, and Bill Gelineau. Everyone was professionally photographed by Taylor’D Photos out of Ortonville, and the images will be posted shortly.

The banquet was splendid, with a special freedom plaque presented by the LP of West Michigan to a local hero named Vern Verduin–who posted a political message sign on a truck sitting on his farm and successfully challenged ‘city hall’ when they tried to prohibit it. Then the banquet speaker, founder of ‘Mommynomics’ Ms. Christie Diaz, presented an absolutely delightful unraveling of the absurd statist forces that interfere with personal fulfillment of unique individuals such as ourselves. Christie gives new meaning the phrase, “I’m really just a nobody.”
