Liberty-lovers: what can we do – right now – to get our point of view in front of the public? Let’s create our own media presence to lead by example and get our message out there.

Libertarian Party Transparency Caucus resolution authorizing the “My LP” project

The LP Transparency caucus passed the following resolution by a vote of 4-2:

Whereas the LP Transparency Caucus seeks to build greater engagement between the membership and the leadership of the national party, for a more cohesive Libertarian Party that transcends ideological battles;

Whereas party documents of interest to the membership such as meeting agendas, the LNC Policy Manual, budget and other reports, executive committee meeting minutes and pre-2004 minutes can not be found on the LP website;

Whereas there is an urgent need to promptly provide information about the administration of the party to its members so that they may play an active role in the running of the party, thus making for a more effective and accountable LP; and

Whereas members of the caucus have the technical skills, resources and commitment necessary to fill this gap: now therefore, be it

Resolved, the LP Transparency Caucus authorizes the formation of the “My LP” project to publish a website for use by LP members which will enable them to access party information, discuss it and provide feedback to their representatives and appoints George Donnelly as project leader.
