Jennifer Jeffrey has resigned as the Chair of the Libertarian Party of Allen County.
Her letter to the party follows.
Dear Friends and Members:
Thomas Jefferson once said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed
from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its
natural manure." I truly feel all leaders should evaluate their roles
from time to time and put party needs above personal goals.
Because of this belief, I find myself standing at such a crossroad
where I have decided the party is in need of leadership which will be
able to focus on the needs of the upcoming elections, growing the
party, and planning for the future.
I have found a greater need of my own which is to focus on my family
and issues which need greater attention than my role as Chair of the
It has been a tremendous and historic run for me and the people who
believed in the change the Libertarian Party of Allen County offered
this year. I am truly grateful for the support, respect and enthusiasm
for myself and the ideas we represented. The year and years to come
will, no doubt, be full of more historic moments and great leaders.
My resignation will take effect immediately and the current
Vice-Chair, Jonathan Bartels, will take over as the Chair until the
April 2008 convention.
The membership will vote to approve me as the Chair or to select another replacement at the next LPAC Meeting. That Meeting is on January 21st at 6:30 at the main branch of the Allen County Public Library in meeting room B. All LP Members are strongly encouraged to attend.
