The Libertarian National Committee is expected to announce the hiring of Reed Cooley for the position of Communications Director later today.
Libertarian National Committee Chair Angela McArdle teased on social media that the party had hired a “very based communications director” over the weekend. She followed up in an additional tweet that an announcement was planned for Tuesday. While McArdle did not disclose Cooley’s name, news of his hire spread quickly across social media.
LNC Vice Chair Joshua Smith publicly tagged Cooley on Facebook and congratulated him for being hired as the new communications director. Smith further disclosed in his post that the decision to approve Cooley was unanimous.
LNC Secretary Caryn Ann Harlos also confirmed the hiring of Cooley in the private LNC Membership Connection group. “I feel like kindred spirits in whistleblowing in organizations we cared deeply about and both paid the price”, Harlos said of the new communications director.
Cooley has also since updated his personal Twitter account to reflect his new position. On Facebook, he said that it’s an “honor to continue serving the Ron Paul Revolution”. Today is expected to be Cooley’s first official day in the position.
Cooley previously worked with Young Americans for Liberty, serving as their director of public relations and later as vice president of communications. On his professional LinkedIn profile, Cooley says that he got his start with Young Americans for Liberty in 2018 as a canvasser before becoming involved with their communications team. Cooley would later be responsible for the entirety of YAL’s social media presence, introducing what he now calls an “ambitious plan to not only engage the news cycle, but to drive it.”
