Libertarian Lily Tang Williams running for State Office in Colorado


Email from Lily Tang Williams Forwarded by Norm Olsen to LNC:

Dear Friends and Freedom Lovers:

It is official. I am running for Colorado House District 44 this year.

I was nominated at the Colorado Libertarian State Convention unanimously as a candidate for House District 44. I have filed all the paperwork on time required by the Secretary of State. My campaign has begun.

I truly appreciate this opportunity to spread the message of Liberty. As a Chinese American Immigrant, I have a compelling story to tell what it really means to be free after have lived under the Communist China regime for 23 years.

I have set up a Facebook page for my campaign: Lily4Liberty

I welcome you to go to the page and like it, share it with your Facebook friends, especially if you have friends who are immigrants. Some of them might connect with my message about choosing liberty against tyranny if they had a horrible experience living under a dictatorship.

To make this campaign effective, I need many volunteers and lots of support. It does not matter whether you can vote for me or not, whether you agree with me 100% or not. It is the message of liberty that is important. If you know someone in the media or organizations in the community that would like to hear what I have to say as candidate, please help out and let me know, I will be there. If you can donate money, any amount would be appreciated (the maximum is $200 by Colorado Law), please write your check to my political committee: Lily4HD44

Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Lily Tang Williams

Candidate for Colorado House District 44

    Way to go, Lily!

    I have a bias, since Lily is running to represent the district I live in. 🙂

    Good luck to her! It’s great to see a new face in leadership/candidacy for the LP. Despite our area being heavily Asian, we have exactly zero who are in our party in Los Angeles. It drives me crazy, and I don’t know why.

    I have the same problem here in NoVA Jill. Its on of those vicious cycles. There are no Asians, so no Asians feel comfortable coming around, so there are no Asians. Same goes for all other minority groups, except for homosexuals, in my experience. But, we do see an occasional member from most of the other ethnic groups.

    Hence why I support diversity efforts…but then I get dumbass libertarians who think I’m promoting quotas and reverse discrimination or whatever. Stupid $^&& shooting them/ourselves in the foot.

    Glad to see her running and hopefully many more…

    You know, I was supposed to get a Spanish tri-fold brochure together. I had a translator lined up. I forgot all about it. Maybe I should get on that.

    Good idea.

    A group of ladies has started a National Organization for Women, and I posted something about it on Facebook. Sure enough, one of the older Libertarian men gave me a hard time and asked where the National Organization for Libertarian Men was. I tried to ignore him, but I finally told him that he was welcome to start one. His response: “First, tell me why you need an organization for women”. I answered that many people think the LP would benefit by having more women members, and since I agreed with that and I was asked to join the group, I did. Then, I tiold him he was welcome to ignore us, and he went away. My point is that some of the lack of diversity is our own fault.

    ALL of the lack of diversity is our own fault.

    Agreed! But rather than focusing mostly on blame and dejection I am encouraging efforts to make needed changes.

    On the OAI phone call last night Lilly said she is getting a lot of press on her latest campaign against common core. She sent me a couple of articles which I forwarded to all IPR writers.

  11. Jill Pyeatt Jill Pyeatt December 5, 2014

    I just forwardarded them to my office. Hopefully I can put up an article this afternoon, unless someone gets to it before me.

  12. paulie paulie December 8, 2014

    Working my way through my email, I forwarded at least one more and maybe more since then.

  13. Jill Pyeatt Jill Pyeatt December 8, 2014

    I had two articles, and put them both into this article.

    Thanks Jill!
