The Wake County Libertarian Party will host a discussion on electoral reform starting at 7:30pm on Thursday, August 18 at The Gourmet Factory on Western Boulevard. Moderated by Brad Hessel, Libertarian candidate for NC Senate-15, this will be the second in series of meetups that address key issues leading up to the election in November.
“Libertarians have different answers than those that have been heard anywhere else in America’s political experience,” said Brian Lewis, WakeLP Chair (and himself a candidate for NC House District 11). “This is where you can come to hear them.”
The WakeLP executive committee voted yesterday to appoint Bruce Basson of Cary as vicechair to fill the vacancy created by the resignation last month of Lonnie Holcomb, who moved to West Virginia.
“Bruce is an enthusiastic supporter of our candidates and policies of getting government out of both your pocketbook and your bedroom here in Wake County,” stated WakeLP Chair Brian Lewis. “We appreciate his willingness to step up and contribute his time in person as well as on social media.”
“Philosophically, I am committed to maximum liberty and minimum government,” added Basson. “I had already been considering getting more involved with the LP here in North Carolina when the call came. Spreading the word about libertarianism is the right thing to do both personally and for my fellow citizens. And 2016 is such a great year to be Libertarian!”
Basson will serve out the rest of the 2016-2017 term of office which runs until the WakeLP annual convention next March.
With national attention firmly focused on the horse race for the White House, the Wake County Libertarian Party have scheduled a series of meetups that will address key local issues between now and November. The LPNC gubernatorial candidate, Lon Cecil, and the seven Libertarians running for NCGA seats in Wake County have all agreed to stress three main issues—education, the environment, and transportation—and each of those three will be the subject of one of these programs.Read more
