Don’t forget to reserve your room with the Santa Clara Marriott Hotel. There are discounts when you use the Libertarian Party code that is listed. Deadline to reserve rooms at the discounted rate is April 7, so please hurry. Convention package prices will go up on April 1, so now is the best time to make your plans.

Party business will be conducted as well, with election of officers and State Executive Committee members, and discussion of bylaws and platform. If you are a dues-paying party member for any 90 day period preceding the start of business, you are eligible to be a delegate and participate in party business. If your membership has expired, now is the time to renew, or you can do so at the convention. Some of the packages include membership renewal, so you can sign up there as well.

I look forward to seeing you at the convention.

You may have noticed that Kent Fowler, an elected member of the Feather River Recreation and Park District Board, will be one of our speakers. Kent is an elected Libertarian, but I wasn’t aware of it until now. He will be added to our list of California Libertarians who are serving in office. A belated congratulations to Kent!

For liberty,
Ted Brown
