Opinion article submitted by Paulie

Derek Hunter writes:

Libertarians write letters in support of John Jay Myers for LNC vacancy

Chuck Moulton in IPR comments:

I had heard several people mention the idea of leaving David Nolan’s at-large seat vacant. It seemed like a good idea to me, but when I read the bylaws I found that the LNC is required to fill the vacancy.

LP Bylaws, article 8, section 7:

The National Committee shall appoint new officers and members-at-large if vacancies occur, such officers and members-at-large to complete the term of the office vacated.
