I’ll be speaking at three Libertarian Party state conventions in April. I consider myself honored to be sharing the podium with people like former congressman Bob Barr, of the Advocates for Self Government, Vice Admiral (retired) , , LNC Chair Michael Dixon, LNC Vice Chair , Dade County GA County Executive Ben Brandon (who defeated his GOP opponent by a 2-1 margin), of the Irwinton GA City Council, Dr. Lawrence Egbert of the Maryland ACLU, LP Chief of Staff Shane Cory, Russ Diamond of PACleanSweep, Rep. Randy Hinshaw of the Alabama legislature and Thomas Firey of CATO and MPPI.
Bob Johnston indicated that the Maryland crowd was interested in my inside perspective of the 2004 presidential race and wanted my insight about running effective political campaigns. Thomas Knapp artfully combined the two issues and wrote most of the material I’ll be presenting. Hopefully, I’ll do his work some justice at all three April events. I’ll be the dinner speaker in Baltimore and speaking around lunch time in Montgomery and Atlanta.
Additionally, I was invited to speak at the Wisconsin LP Convention, but had to decline due the scheduling conflict with the Alabama LP. I thought I’d give them the plug because they were nice enough to invite me. I’ll likely be speaking in some function for the Badnarik campaign at the Texas Libertarian Party convention, too. We’re working out the details at this moment. Of course, I’ve threatened not to take this trip if the doesn’t back down. After all, drinking and politics go hand in hand.
Here are the links for all five conventions:
April 1, 2006 Baltimore (Dundalk), Maryland
April 8, 2006
April 8, 2006
April 22, 2006
June 10, 2006
Hopefully, I’ll see some of you at one or more of these upcoming events.
