Jason Gatties has announced that he will seek the office of vice-chairman of the Boston Tea Party National Committee. The election will be held in late October.
“It is my goal to help the Boston Tea Party continue to grow and eventually become what the Libertarian Party once was,” said Gatties.
Gatties has launched a new Web site for his BTP vice-chairman candidacy.
Gatties is also a candidate for non-partisan office in Michigan. Running for Lake Michigan College Board of Trustees, he is one of four candidates in a race that will elect three.
Gatties joined the Boston Tea Party partly out of frustration with LP presidential nominee Bob Barr. Gatties originally endorsed Barr, but like many Libertarians, he later had a change of heart. Gatties switched his endorsement to back the Boston Tea Party’s Charles Jay.
Gatties still has a page on his site encouraging people to “Vote Libertarian!“
