It has been a very decent year for all our affiliates in the LPNevada.

Nye and the Northern affiliate have held their conventions the results for officers are as follows:

Nye County Libertarian Party election results:

Chair: Mike Darby
Vice Chair: Jim Duensing
Secy: Sandi Darby
Treasurer: Isabel Isherwood
Northern Nye At Large: Jim Burns
Southern Nye at Large: Tabled until next meeting.

activism was alive and well and I think that Nye may have been our most active affililate in terms of outreach/media covered events , but of course this is just a guess since I cant know everything. at any rate , congratulations Nye County!
Capital affiliate – NVCLP:.

Chair: David Colborne
Vice-Chair: Jim Cooley
Secretary: Thomas Cornell
Treasurer: Rowan Wilson

County rep positions are unfilled; we passed a bylaws amendment to reduce quorum requirements to account for that (need three of the above four now, instead of five).

last year was a very decent year for the NVCLP

Clark County has not yet held it’s convention but by the time this is read tomorrow it will have. This past year was a good one for candidates , with us fielding more than ever before. It was a good one for the election cycle , with outreach like San Genarro a huge success. Im certain the new excom will be 1 the state can be proud of!

It has been my honor to serve the LPNevada for a decade , I am not seeking reelection to any position except possibly Judicial …

see you all tomorrow

    Yes, I know. I was making a more specific inquiry of those who know the people listed @ 1.

    I know why one “side” prevailed over the other, and you are correct on that. But @1 provides additional detail.

  3. David Colborne

    Regarding the Judicial Committee vote, it looks like Ed was a strong “bipartisan” choice, with the remainder of the votes being cast on “party” lines, for lack of a better way to put it. I’m willing to bet that, if I took another look at who nominated whom, it would explain some of the results.

    I am a little surprised that Tim was so low, though. He’s normally above the usual factional nonsense, which usually pays off on these votes.

    i got the same as jim burns…ROFL , thats because ive turned against both the Duensing and Silvestri clans…LOL , its really funny how sililar they are , altho theyd both say NOT!

    2 megalo-maniaca who always think they are right , never admit theyre wrong and speak loudly and well even , but NEVER listen…

    Jim told all his ‘FOLLOWERS’ to not vote for me and they think he’s the fu-shizzle , and Joe cut me out of his team , way way back , oddly enuf , because he told me to say nothing about the Duensing shooting and I came out and said the cops are wrong , then i voted for Jims thingy to call for cams on tasers. LOL

    strange , isnt it? Ima do what I thinks best , be nice even when you call me gullible , but if need be ill call you out , i dont care how close we are or were.

    p.s the 3 of us were inseparable for A LONG TIME, best of friends, and trust me the 2 of them together were 10 times as annoying as they are separately.

    The purging and running people away was ata all time high when the bopsy twins ran the show..

    i will admit this tho , i was so close to them at the time , i let them convince me when i had reservations or maybe i went along with them when i knew better just because they were my 2 best friends..

    I regret that , I shouldve listened to my conscience ….

    but i do not regret stepping up to try to unseat either 1 of them, i regret , for them , it meant the end of good friends for me…

    Isn’t that like among the top 2-3 definitions of “libertarian” in the dictionary? 🙁
