Libertarian State Convention
[NEENAH] Wisconsin Libertarians held their annual state convention Saturday at the Bridgewood Resort in Neenah. Delegates conducted the annual business meeting, who dedicated the convention to honoring the life and memory of the late Tonie Nathan, a founding member of the Libertarian Party, the Party’s first candidate for Vice President of the United States, and the first woman in U.S. history to ever receive an electoral vote.
The convention endorsed a slate of candidates for public office in 2014, including:
- Robert Burke – Governor
- Joseph Brost – Lt. Governor
- Andy Craig – Secretary of State
- Tom Nelson – Attorney General
- Jerry Shidell – State Treasurer
- Joseph Kexel – Congress (1st)
- Gus Fahrendorf – Congress (6th)
- Rob Taylor – Congress (7th)
- Terry Virgil – State Senate (13th)
- George Meyers – State Assembly (66th)
- Jerry Seifert – State Assembly (84th)
- Chuck Schilling – State Assembly (97th)
Delegates were delighted to have the opportunity to hear the keynote address at the banquet by Gov. Gary Johnson, 2012 Libertarian presidential candidate, whose enthusiastic remarks about the future of freedom inspired the crowd to its feet.
The Libertarian Party of Wisconsin is Wisconsin’s third political party, founded as an alternative to the two main political parties. LPWI principles promote a government that is fiscally conservative and socially liberal.
