Jon-Luc Tesky running for Libertarian Party of Florida chair

Jon-Luc Tesky via FB:

Today April 1, 2019, I announce my candidacy for Chair of the Libertarian Party of Florida. We are at a crossroads. In 2014 and 2016, we had statewide candidates, we had a growing membership, and we were politically relevant. In 2017, Marcos Miralles was elected Chair, and reversed our course.

In 2018, we had no Statewide candidates, our membership is stagnant and inactive, and we are officially irrelevant on the Florida political scene. To top that off, under Marco’s watch, we lost $15000 due to fraud, and we were investigated by both the state of Florida and the federal government.

The LPF has become a haven for the alt-right, and we have lost the principles that made our Party great. We need a new direction and new leadership. The current crop of candidates are uninspiring, ineffective, and part of the same Executive Committee that has lead our Party to irrelevancy.

So, I am running for Chair to fix our Party. We need strong leadership with strong principles to reinvigorate our Party and stop the takeover by the alt-right. We need to have statewide candidates, and we need to inspire our members again.

I have a long history of activism in this party, I pre-registered as a Libertarian, when I was 16 and joined my local affiliate when I was 18. I am currently the Vice Chair of the Polk County Libertarian Party. I’ve worked on both the Wyllie and Stanton campaign. I am a proven fundraiser.

Vote for me to be chair of the Libertarian Party of Florida, and together we will end the stagnation, and make our party relevant again!


Tesky clarified in comments that this was not an April Fools joke..

It’s not an April Fools joke like the current state of the LPF

By way of party resume he says:

I’m very active and have been active since 2013.

I was Paul Stanton’s campaign manager, A delegate whip for Austin Petersen, A volunteer for Adrian Wyllie’s campaign, I’ve served on the membership committee for the state party, I’ve been active in my local affiliate since I was 16 years old and I’m now 23.

    I can’t be at the convention — having to save my pennies for another upcoming trip — but good luck to Jon-Luc in unwrecking the train.

    I hope he understands that activism and administration are two vastly different things. That’s not commenting on any of the candidates, but on the roles themselves.

    The longest serving Libertarian mayor in Florida, Martin Sullivan of Frostproof, endorsed Jon-luc Tesky.

    I have known Jon-luc for many years, and I fully support his bid for State Chair. I have seen him grow from a young activist to a seasoned leader in Polk County. When Jon-luc puts his mind and heart into something, he can accomplish amazing things. I firmly believe that Jon-luc is the right guy to lead this party.

    Martin Sullivan,
    Mayor of Frostproof
