IPR Writers Seeking LP Positions

– A flyer on my table seeks delegate votes for Brian Holtz for Judiciary Committee. If my memory is correct, Brian previously said he would not seek another term on JudCom

-Starchild is reportedly running for LNC At Large

-Aaron Starr is running for Treasurer. Two new candidates have joined that race; I will post a separate article on that.

That’s all I know off the top of my head; others in comments and/or future revisions of this post.

    LOL, no.

    I would not be interested in any LNC position and would refuse it if anyone nominated me, which I don’t think anyone would.

  2. Brian Holtz

    I was asked to reconsider by several people that I respect. The clincher was hearing that Judge Gray would be running for VP and thus JudCom would be losing him.

    Plus, as I was mocking up what my election flyer would look like, I came up with the idea of a convention floor drinking game, and it was way too fun not to see it through.

    Most of us didn’t get any further than the drinking game Brian. Hopefully someone can scan a copy for IPR 🙂

    @Trent, yes AND I’m a life member of the LP.
    To tell you the truth, like to see Starchild (and all other members of the Grassroots Caucus and LPRadicals) join the BTP – however, I don’t see that happening any time soon. That said, I’d like to see the LP elect good people to the LNC and I believe Starchild would be an asset to the LNC should he get elected.

    Seems like you’re both betraying your position as head of another party and inserting your nose into another party’s business.

    @Trent, when Tom Knapp formed the BTP he was still an LP member, when he was the BTP Vice Presidential nominee he was also an LP candidate for Congress. The BTP has no requirement that members of the party can’t also be members of other parties; thus I see no conflict, nor does/did the party founder.
    I’ve attempted to reach out to and work with the LP and other pro-liberty groups, which is fully within the purpose of the BTP.

    The purposes of the Boston Tea Party are: To empower lovers of freedom to reduce the size, scope and power of government through various means, including but not limited to: Nominating and/or endorsing candidates for election and appointment to public office; affecting public policy through information, education and advocacy campaigns; and supporting the diverse and important work of the individuals and organizations comprising the libertarian movement.

    @13 “Seems like you’re both betraying your position as head of another party and inserting your nose into another party’s business.”

    The same could be said of a certain member of the LNC/LNCC who has advocated voting for specific Republicans.

  8. Brian Holtz

    Trent@11: in general, you can safely ignore advice for the LP from anyone involved in a party that runs candidates against the Libertarian Party’s candidates.

    Especially if his only defense of his actions is to say that he has permission from that competing party to “help” the LP.

    all other members of the Grassroots Caucus

    How many people is that, exactly? I tried to join the Yahoo group to find out the names of any members beside Starchild, and was told by Mr. Transparency that he doesn’t believe me that I support 4 of his 5 key values (and don’t oppose the vague #1) and therefore I’m not allowed to see caucus membership or archives.

    (Archives and membership rolls of the old Reform Caucus were always public.)

    Update: Starchild and Brian won; Aaron lost.

    My region rep just told me he would like for me to be alternate (filling a vacancy created when our previously elected alternate was elected national vice chair) and so far I have the stated support of one of the state chairs in the region.
