*My Fellow Libertarians,
Please accept my application to re-join the LNC as an At-Large member. My resume is attached for your reference, and this one-page version is tailored to address only my LP experience.
My day job is based out of the ~ 5th largest refinery in the US, and I work in the Automation Department as an Instrumentation Engineer. Effective next year, I’ll have 5 weeks of vacation; so, I can afford the time & cost to attend LNC meetings.
I look forward to responding to any questions.

Gary Johnson 2012 Texas Campaign co-Director
Houston, TX 77071 2011 to Present
Prior to the start of Gary Johnson’s LP campaign in late 2011, I originated and led an effort to “Recruit Gary” to seek the LP nomination for President. The first photo of Governor Johnson in LP News was captioned with the notice “Paid for as an FEC independent expenditure by Guy McLendon.” The “Recruit Gary” team that I initiated mailed a recruitment solicitation to former 2008/2010 LP national convention delegates.
During the 2012 Texas state convention, I co-managed the luncheon fundraiser that brought in about $14,000 net receipts for the campaign.
I jointly coordinated a week long “Texas Swing” for the campaign, and managed the Houston event which raised $4,300 net receipts for the campaign.
LNC Region 1 Alternate Region Alternate
Houston, TX 77071 2010 to 2012
I performed phone solicitations following a LNC meeting in Washington, DC. If a solicitor landed a $1000 donor, they were entitled to ring a large “Liberty Bell” located in the LNC Executive Director’s office in a corner office of the Watergate Hotel that’s overlooking the Potomac River. I was the only solicitor that day to ring the bell.
Quarterly Region Reports: I collected & submitted regional report data for the following states – AR, LA, MS, OK & TX.
National Platform Committee Texas Representative
Houston, TX 77071 2006, 2008 & 2010 Committees
In 2006, I was elected by my peers as Vice-Chair of the Platform Committee.
In 2008 following the deletion of more than 90% of the planks in 2006, I served on the “Directional Principles” subcommittee whose product was adopted by the full Platform Committee. The work of this subcommittee, subsequently amended by the full Platform Committee, comprised the core of the modern National Platform which was first adopted by the 2008 National Convention.

*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. They will be voted on at the next meeting, this November in Washington DC. 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. Here is the post written by Geoffrey Neale, Chairman of the Libertarian Party, about the process for people to nominate themselves for the position.
