Wanted: LP Convention Field Reporter

2006 LP ConventionDue to some last minute “everything has gone to shit” complications on my end trying to make travel arrangements, it appears I won’t be able to make it to the 2006 Libertarian Party Convention in Portland. My arrangements had been tenuous at best to begin with, so it’s not a big let-down. However, I’m sure more than one person who regularly reads HoT will most likely be going to Portland and I’d like to offer our media credentials to them.

The major caveat is that you can’t be a delegate, vendor or media rep at the same time. And you’ll be getting a lot of emails from me with direction on who to track down, blogging guidance, which events to cover and people to high-five or smack on the back of the head. This also requires working knowledge of how to use a camera, since we’ll expect photos from various events. Blogging experience is a huge plus.

If this is something you’re up to and you definitely will be in Portland, please leave a comment expressing your interest.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Bob: one tequila, two tequila, three tequila… floor. Anyone who’s been reading HoT long enough (or has attended many LP events) should know that heavy drinking is part of the job description, so bring an iron liver.

    Wes P: right, verbal semantics… in reality the term is just “blogger.”

  2. Nigel Watt: Ask me again on Monday, HoT is getting some redesign as well.

  3. I would definitely be interested in this. I am in Washington State and could get down to Portland for that weekend.

    I’ve only been blogging since February and own a digital camera. I am very knowledgable in libertarian thought, but have never been active in the Libertarian Party. My introduction to libertarianism happened because of my profound respect for the wisdom of the U.S. Constitution.

    Some examples of my writing.

  4. Whatever you do while in Portland, though, don’t listen to anything Richard Burke says.
