    Heard from Witney Bilyeu:

    EC voted 6-0 to encumber $16,000 for petition drives for two Citywide candidates in DC.

    They also voted 6 – 0 to increase the encumbrance for New Hampshire from $15,000 to $20,000, a $5,000 increase.

    That independent is Roque “Rocky” de la Fuente. New Hampshire had a stupid law that says that a New Hampshire voter can only sign for one candidate for each office, so people who sign the Rocky petition can’t sign the LIbertarian Party presidential petition, and so on an so forth.

    Now discussing NH petitioning. Increase encumbrance from 15000 to 20000. They are sending Nick Dunbar and Andy Burns to help get it going. An independent is offering $7 a signature. Passes 6-0 chair abstaining.

    Vote was 6-0 in favor with the chair abstaining.

    it is advantageous to run both candidates. If either succeeds, in 2018 the DCLP can run five candidates with 8 signatures, and gets more shots at 2020 presidential access with very few signatures. They are now proposing $16000 to run two city wide candidates.

    There is some question as to how well the Johnson drive is doing at the moment,and perhaps a higher dollar per sig rate is needed for the Johnson drive. There is after 45 minutes at long last a question as to whether or not a district candidate can get enough votes to change party status.

    One of them is a bit vitriolic.

  8. George Phillies George Phillies July 11, 2016

    They are considering which candidate to support.

  9. George Phillies George Phillies July 11, 2016

    There are two DC candidates who can be supported, and there is discussion as to which one should be supported. Speakers claim that Martin Moulton has on or off supported Trump and opposed Weld, and the other candidate is a good small businessman. They just discovered that they have already encumbered more money than the LNC appropriated for ballot access, before giving DC this money.

    Can someone take notes on this meeting? I won’t be able to be there.

    This encumbrance seems to be for delegate rather than for president. I believe my doppelganger Martin Moulton is running for delegate. He’s a super-nice guy who has repeatedly stepped up to run for office, but one may wonder why he helped organize “Libertarians for Trump”.

  12. Andy Andy July 10, 2016

    The LNC did an encumbrance for Washington DC in their last teleconference. I wonder if they are doing another one because they realized that the amount they encumbered is not enough. I told them that DC is a hard place for gathering petition signatures, because there are so many people there from other places, and that the motels are expensive. Maybe they are having a hard time finding people to work there for the money they were offering, and now they realize that they need more money. I would not want to go there unless they come up with expense money for motels, and/or increase the pay rate.
