  6. Announcement by Michael R. Corliss

    Dear fellow Libertarians,

    As most of you know, our current State Chair, Stacy Van Oast, has decided not to run for reelection. Stacy has done an excellent job, particularly in assisting and motivating the candidates during the long campaign last summer and fall. Since she has decided to step down, however, I am hereby announcing my plans to run for the office of State Chair for the LPM.

    Over the past two years, I have had many interesting and fruitful discussions with LPM members across the state about what our short- and long-term objectives should be, and what strategies are best for reaching them. While there is a wide variety of opinion on these matters, I believe that I will be able to work with all parties to unite the membership behind a set of clearly defined, attainable goals that will advance our party, and the cause of Liberty, over the next year. I look forward to spirited debate on the issues facing us, and I hope to win your support.


    Michael R. Corliss
