LP of Florida Resolution in support of Dallas for national convention

Email from Vicki Kirkland, LP of Florida Chair:

The Libertarian Party of Florida voted on their Sunday night, November 14th State Executive Committee phone conference to endorse Dallas, Texas as the site for the 2012 Naional Convention. The vote was unanimous.

See previous discussion here.

The issue will be decided at this weekend’s LNC meeting.

    I’ve heard back from my Regional Rep. Favors Las Vegas (but could be persuaded) and doesn’t think a convention would work earlier than Memorial Day. If you want Dallas and an earlier con, then you better make your views known to your rep asap.

    From James Oaksun. He said he has done an extensive study of travel costs to the three proposed cities from different parts of the US.


    I have been very public about my support for Dallas as the 2012 site. There are
    many reasons, among others it is the easiest to get to, for the most people.
    And I want to see a big big turnout in 2012!

    Not saying selection of one of the other sites would be a disaster, but I think
    Dallas would be best.

    If any of you have a strong preference on the site one way or the other, I
    suggest you communicate that to your regional rep and regional alternate as soon
    as possible. If you don’t know how to reach them, go to the lp.org site and
    look them up.

    From phone conversation with one of my regional reps he said it is still up in the air as of this time, but Las Vegas or San Francisco are probably in the lead with Dallas as the least likely possibility, although it’s close and many LNC members are not firm in their vote yet. Dallas and Vegas are the two first choices of most committee members, but both also have the strongest negatives, so San Francisco could win because not a lot of people are strongly against it.

    If you feel strongly about any of the cities being selected you should contact
    http://www.lp.org/leadership as soon as possible. Bear in mind that they will be hitting the road soon, so you may wish to leave both an email and a phone message where both are available.
