You will only find this announcement in LPM online, and not the Michigan Libertarian. In my haste to see that the most recent Michigan Libertarian reach members early, I failed to give the Washtenaw Co. Group time to include an article in our publication.
However you should receive a flyer for the event by direct snail mail, and the pdf file may be down-loaded from:

The next Libertarian Executive Committee meeting at our new HQ. Topics will include post election analysis, and planning the 2007 (pre-convention) Leadership Conference.
It will be held at the new LPM Headquarters. In Lansing, Michigan on Michigan Avenue. (about five miles away from the current HQ.) Address to be posted soon.
OK it's that big day. If you haven't voted yet. Do it. Don't forget ballot initiatives. Especially yes on 2 and 4!
So far I have encouraged supporters to post signs on their property, and not to use signs up at public signage locations, where the may quickly be removed. However, at this point, we might as well go for broke. The Creswell / Boman signs are campaign specific. If they are not currently in a highly visible location, it may be prudent to move them to a more visible spot, even at the risk of loosing them. Especially near major intersections and polling locations.
Be careful to observe local ordinances pertaining to the posting of signs. “Public signage locations” can be identified as places where signs of competing (like Granholm AND Devos) candidates are displayed, and the property is not clearly linked to any particular resident or business. For whatever reason, it seems that a bit of campaign season littering is tolerated. Clean up afterwards of course.
Generic “Vote Libertarian” signs are reusable, and recovery is important. If it is not too much trouble, recover those Creswell /Boman signs too. You never know.
Finally, collect wires early, collect wires often. Candidates can always use wires.
First of all, I would like to thank Debbie Evans for organizing this rally, and inviting us. While attendance (at the November 3rd event) was modest, those who attended were some of the most enthusiastic freedom lovers I ever met.
Our response from passersby’s was overwhelmingly positive. We were not deterred by the cold. But one big lesson came out of this: If we leave the L-word out, the media pays attention. The Channel 4 news at noon announced the rally, using the organizers press release almost verbatim.
I have sent out many press releases, all clearly connected with a Libertarian campaign, or the LPM. No response from South East Michigan TV stations.
Clearly, organizing non-partisan issue events, that happen to feature libertarians, is a strategy to consider in the future.
