  2. Dianne Szabla Awarded "The Oakie" by Leonard Schwartz

    The Libertarian Party of Oakland County awarded its annual prize, The Oakie, to Dianne Szabla for meritorious service.

    Dianne has been the LPOC treasurer for ten years. For many years she has also been the treasurer of the Libertarian Party of Michigan Campaign Fund. She joined the party nearly 30 years ago.

    The "Oakie" has taken many forms over the years. This year, it was a bonsai tree, symbolizing Oakland County's oak tree. This was particularly appropriate for Dianne, who is an avid gardener.

    Past recipients include Lloyd Sherman (1998), Lorna Tate (1999), L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County Executive (2000), and Councilman David Eisenbacher (2001).

    L. Brooks Patterson is the only non-LPOC member to ever receive an "Oakie" in recognition of his work to make libertarian-leaning Republicans unwelcome in his own party.
