From an earlier thread, posted by Jared Grifoni (an at large director for the Libertarian Party of Florida):
LPF membership has increase 1200% in the last year +,
LPF voter registration has increased about 20% at the last quarterly check,
We just had the largest and most successful LPF state convention in history last May,
We have a candidate for Governor who polled at 9% and is receiving actual mainstream media coverage,
We have a multitude of good candidates running for offices all over the state,
I drafted and pushed for 2nd Amendment protection resolutions that passed in the City of Marco Island, the City of Naples, Collier County Commission, and Lee County Commission. The resolution was modeled elsewhere in the state. This generated extensive positive media coverage for the LPF,
Just in the last couple weeks, we organized and attended a big anti-Syrian intervention rally that was covered by the mainstream media and I was interviewed on TV and in the paper,
Alex Snitker and Danielle Alexandre have been traveling the state and hosting Regional Planning conferences for all affiliates in each specific LPF region. They have been a great success and have been instrumental in the EC connecting with our membership,
We have plans in the works for a massive voter registration drive across the state this coming winter,
We have libertarians in office in Soil & Water positions that have SHUT DOWN their agency and returned the money to the taxpayers,
The LPF has taken a leading role in fighting common core in Florida, and has passed an anti-Common Core resolution that I drafted in the past week. That same resolution was passed by the Collier County affiliate, the Seminole County affiliate, the Miami-Dade affiliate, and is currently working its way throughout the state,
We also have two very popular Libertarian radio shows in the state of Florida. Liberty Underground with Alex Snitker and Danielle Alexandre is a popular show based out of Tampa. Resistance Radio, a show I host, is on the FM dial and streamed online. My show is based out of Naples. Think of all the people that are exposed to libertarianism every week because of those two shows alone.
I’ve have recently started making weekly posts asking our membership what they have planned to advance the LPF over the following week. Our members post many many wonderful things that they are doing or have plans to do. Each task is unique to their specific county or region and you can see that these people are in fact making a difference.
Are not these items (and many many more that have not been listed) of LPF activism and forward advancement worthy of being reported on by IPR?
Is it not worthy news to interview Adrian Wyllie?
Is it not worthy news to discuss the significant advancements that the LPF has made over the last three years?
Is the fact that the LPF is turning into a legitimate political entity not important? That the people on the ground actually see the party as something worth supporting and voting for?
These changes did not occur because someone snapped their fingers or wished it to be. This is occurring right now because of the many hard workers in the LPF who are showing the citizens of Florida that our party is fit to govern, to shrink the state, and to put principled people into office that will abide by their promises, by the constitution, and are capable of leading people.
These hard workers are members of the LPF Executive Committee, they are county affiliate leaders, they are members, and they are everywhere.
