We had a great meeting tonight!
We heard from members about their road to the Libertarian Party.
A volunteer from the Gary Johnson campaign came out & helped to recruit volunteers.
We had a fun fundraiser where members pledged an amount to contribute per voter that registers Libertarian between now & our next meeting in September. For the record, per the El Pas County Website, last updated 08/16/2016, the current number of registered LP in EPC is 5,165 This is up from 4477 in March. It is up 110 voters in the last 7 days. The Libertarian Party of El Paso County is growing fast!
Thank you to all the great people that stepped up to volunteer for us it is the people that keep the LP up and running. This is going to be our year to shine for Liberty!
