Just curious as to what the requirements are to run on the Libertarian ticket? The reason I ask is that Bill Larson has run a few times against Souder in the Republican primary.

And no, I don't have anything agaisnt Bill. And no, I'm not trying to restrict Libertarians from the ballot. I'm just curious...

I am thinking a good Libertarian or Independent nominee for the Mayoral campaign.

Robert Enders said...

An LP candidate is nominated by the county convention. Then the chairperson and party secretary certify the nominees to the county election board.

We don't have a primary. We are the only "minor party" with permanent ballot access as defined by state law. The upside of being a Libertarian in this state is that it is very easy to get on the November ballot. The downside is that it's very hard to win.

Why not give us a choice for mayor in November? How about Henry - Kelty - Enders race?? John B. Kalb

Robert Enders said...

John,
I'm flattered, but I'm a legislative branch kind of guy for now. And the fact that I still find the "All your base" gag still funny reflects my inexperience.

I will be attneinding the upcoming meeting, and I'm sure I will meet all of the candidates there, but is there any way of contacting the candidates aside from that?

Jennifer Jeffrey, Chair LPAC said...

Hey Kody.. it was Monday :( I didn't have a phone number or I would have called you to say "where are you?!"

Jennifer Jeffrey, Chair LPAC said...

Dave,

Thank you, sincerely, for the kudos!

We are all looking forward to connecting with business owners to share ideas and plan some responsible projects for the city and county.

Several candidates do have a web presence already.. and others in the community who are easily reachable:

Jonathan Bartels you can reach via email on this page. He is the Vice Chair of the LPAC.

Doug Horner you can reach via email on this page. He is the secretary of the LPAC.

Robert Enders you can reach via email on this page. He is the treasurer of the LPAC.

Gloria Diaz is linked on Robert Ender's blog site (to the right also).

Byron Peters is the owner of the 412 Club on East Washington in Downtown Ft. Wayne.

The other candidates can be reached via me until we get their web presence situated, etc.. although Bill Larsen has been an active blogger and former candidate before. There is a lot of information out there about them.

In the coming weeks we will be loading pages with contact information about each of them on our website www.allencountylp.org.
