LPPC to be dissolved as Medical Marihuana Coalition Forms

Posted by Pinellas Libertarians on December 30, 2009 at 12:03 PM



At the December 21, 2009 Libertarian Party of Pinellas Annual Meeting with our bi-annual activist dinner-brunch group, some new officers were elected. Ralph Swanson, (in photo above seated) former State Party Chair and Long-Time Administrator for the Libertarian Party of Florida was instrumental in helping to organize the Pinellas Libertarian Party of Florida affiliate. At the LPPC Annual meeting Ralph assisted with the Libertarian literature and sign-in list, and announced the dissolution of the LPPC by spring due to continued problems with the State Party after a phone consultation with users and David Nolan, national party founder, who outlined what he wanted done. As a result the LP Florida was losing much of its support base, people in public office and more who had already ceased to co-operate with the troubled state party.

The Libertarian Party of Pinellas had some By-Law changes and an election of officers for 2010 as follows:

More importantly the real activism continued in our community and an agreement made to work on several upcoming petitions such as medical marihuana.
