MSU Libertarians held elections for officers at it’s September 9 meeting. The officers are as follows:

President: Ben Crawford – Junior, Music Education.
Vice President: Jeff Hyslop – Freshman, James Madison
Secretary: Greg Stempfle – Junior, Physics
Treasurer: George Chapp – Freshmen, James Madison.

“We need to get the word out to MSU students that there exists a worthwhile alternative to the two [standard] parties. That alternative is Harry Browne and the Libertarians,” said Ben Crawford, newly elected MSU Libertarians President. “The time is right for enormous change in our government, we’re the only party dedicated to making these necessary changes.”

MSU Libertarians, founded in April of 1996, boasts over 40 student members, and expects tremendous growth during the course of the ’96 election year. “Generation X is strongly libertarian,” said Mike Brinkman, candidate for State Representative, 70th Dist. “This has been acknowleged in several major newspapers, including the Wall St. Journal and USA Today. In a front page article on Wednesday July 26, 1995, USA Today declared Generation X the Libertarian Generation.” Brinkman hopes to gain significant support from MSU students.

MSU Libertarians plan several activites for the upcoming election season, including registering voters and hosting LP Vice Presidential Candidate Jo Jorgensen at a Noon rally on October 11, 1996.

MSU Libertarians meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at the MSU Union Iowa Room, @ 7:30 p.m.
