DAVID E. BLAU
At Large Representative on the Libertarian National Committee.
SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS
I am a current member of the Libertarian National Committee, with 15 months of experience in the body. I have not missed a meeting during that time. I know what is expected of LNC members, and I will fully commit to all of the financial, legal, and ethical responsibilities of the At Large position.
I believe that all people have the right to live their lives without coercion from others. I am socially tolerant and financially conservative.
I have several years experience leading a mid-size volunteer organization (over 400 members) and setting departmental policies from a goal-oriented perspective.
I am an attorney admitted to the bars of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I have studied election law, and taken continuing legal education on the topics of election administration, campaign finance laws, and lobbying.
I think both strategically and tactically, and I am very organized, but I am also not afraid to get my hands dirty with grassroots activism.

*Because of the resignation of Wayne Allyn Root, there is now an opening for an At-Large Representative on the Libertarian National Committee. The candidates for the position have been asked to write a 2-page letter of why they would like to be on the LNC. IPR would like to feature the letters ahead of the meeting. This way, our readers can get to know about the choices and can take an opportunity to contact their Regional Reps and the Executive Committee of the candidate they’d like to see elected.
