“No man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”
Today was the first day the legislature was in session. Comments are visible on the LPCT-Activists mailing. You can find the full list of bills at http://www.cga.ct.gov/ . Note that the lists change regularly and it is very hard to find bills once they are not in the newest batch. There is a cookie-based utility you can use to construct a list of bills to watch so you’ll know when action is taken on them.
Volunteers are needed to maintain this list throughout the session. Efforts last year missed several lists; it is updated too often for one person to maintain it.
Here is to a year ahead filled with happiness, good health, liberty and freedom. Best wishes!
“The Libertarian Party of Connecticut, in conjunction with the Green Party and Our America Initiative, is engaged in ongoing efforts to lobby the state legislature for better ballot access laws and the inclusion of all registration-qualified parties on the voter registration form. Volunteers are needed for this effort, please contact Joshua Katz atJoshua.Katz@lp.org
to help out.
Additionally, there are current vacancies on the Bylaws Committee and the Outreach Committee. Activists are also needed to participate in planning efforts for the 2015 municipal elections. We are also seeking candidates for local office in 2015.
The legislative session begins on February 7. Volunteers are needed to check the list of bills on a weekly basis and report any of particular interest to Libertarians.
Finally, another way to become a Libertarian public official is by seeking appointment to a local board or commission. Many towns have vacancies on several boards. If you find a vacancy in your town you are interested in, please contact Joshua Katz to seek a partisan endorsement.”
The SCC of the Libertarian Party of Connecticut will hold a meeting.
Saturday Nov 22, at 1:00 PM at the Wethersfield Public Library, 515 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, CT 06109
The meeting shall take place on Monday Oct 27 at 8:30 PM
Dear friends of Liberty,
The LPCT hosts two e-mail fora where open and respectful exchange is encouraged. One for Opinions and another for Activists.
Due to a minor glitch in the system, the member lists were reset and we have to ask folks to re-join one or both lists.
In order to keep spam to a minimum the server (Mailman) requires confirmation prior to accepting posts to the lists. The process is painless.
If anyone has recently posted to the lists and wondered if the list got the message, it’s safe to assume they did not. Please accept my personal apologies.
Going forward, I have set the list privacy options in an attempt to spare us all from the offers for “FREE Photofinishing”, “Russian Brides” and the pharmaceuticals we all love to joke about.
If you know someone who was on the list, please direct them here so they can signup again.
All Libertarian Party candidates are now listed on the ballot! This includes Dan Reale, running for US Congress in the 2nd District. It also includes Rich Lion, running for State Rep in District 9 (Manchester) in – please note – a 2 way race!
Please come out and support our candidates; they can use volunteer hours, door to door campaigners, people willing to distribute and display yard signs, and whatever else you can provide.
District 9 offers the unusual instance of a straight-up, no “wasted vote” syndrome, choice between freedom and the state. Let’s help our fellow citizens to choose freedom!
