STATE OF THE HILLSBOROUGH LIBERTARIANS
FIRST - Let's CELEBRATE !! We are a busy, growing, and active party in Hillsborough County. In fact, we have consistently been one of the top 3 counties with the most registered Libertarian voters in the state of FL, and the state of FL has consistently been one of the top 3 states in the nation of Registered Libertarians. We are furthermore, one of the top 5 states in the Nation for having Libertarians serving in elected positions. THIS MAKES HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY FL a place that others are watching and learning from.
We want to continue to ROCK the LIBERTARIAN MESSAGE, continue to grow in numbers, dollars and force such that we can put our Libertarian values and principles INTO ACTION. We
educate the public,
seek out like-minded individuals,
work together no matter the party to promote Libertarian ideals,
seek out, vet, and support Libertarian Candidates that represent Hillsborough County residents at all levels, and
hold all elected officials accountable.
We've recently celebrated solar issues (although we want more), we celebrated legalizing medical marijuana (although we want more), we celebrated LBGT rights and acceptance (and seek to assist non-violent felons restore voting rights) we celebrated preventing tolls on the already taxpayer owned Howard Franklin Bridge, and stopping the tolling of I-275 privileged lanes ( although now they are redirecting efforts towards i-75 near Apollo Beach so we are reorganizing for more).
Now, don't you just want to jump in this race car and drive freedom and liberty to great levels? We could not have done this without knowing what was important to us, focusing our dollars and efforts, and working well with others. It is true that we do not win every battle. Although we put up a strong fight we have lost on immigration issues, gun rights issues, red light camera, and public education and health care issues. These are important issues that Hillsborough Libertarians need to continue to focus on. You may have great ideas of other places we need to focus our efforts. We unite online and at socials to hear what you think. We have current efforts to survey all Hillsborough Libertarians during 2018 in preparation for the 2020 elections. ALL OF OUR VOTES and IMPORTANT DISCUSSIONS can be found at any time using BAND.us We have a group for only voting members as well as an outreach group that is public and a Facebook page that is public. If you are receiving this letter please join us on the public BAND.us group and join in the discussions over current issues.
Band can be used on your computer, phone or devise and is easy to use. DEADLINE for current votes is this SUNDAY at 6pm and will be tallied at our MONTHLY BUSINESS MEETING on Zoom (info below)
To do all of these exciting things and more - - - we NEED YOU to participate in whatever fashion you can.
We need to send mailers out to all the registered Libertarian Voters in our area (2600+)
This takes envelopes, paper, printing, postage - we need all of the above.
We want to go door to door and make phone calls in order to meet and know each of these Hillsborough Libertarian Voters by asking them a few simple survey questions to find out what is MOST IMPORTANT to LOCAL LIBERTARIANS.
Can you help us with printing and door knocking or phone calls to gather this info, or even the database as we collect the information?
Running an authentic political party (any political party) takes resources of MONEY and TIME and ENERGY. You do not need to contribute all three.
We have simple opportunities to volunteer from 2 hours per day to 2 hours per month.
We also seek out part-time election volunteers. We need Precinct Captains and Area Leaders and Poll volunteers at each election that happens. We need SOCIAL leaders to host gatherings monthly in their area of Hillsborough County. We need social media volunteers, press release writers, and blog writers to share on our LPHC blog. We host a FUNDRAISER Social in September and need all sorts of once each year support of seeking sponsors, venues, auction items, speakers, decorators, food, ticket sales, advertising, etc. We host an annual convention where we appreciate our previous year's volunteers, elect the next year's leadership team, and share the wealth of knowledge we as a group have learned regarding Living Libertarian.
I am sending you, a current member of the Libertarian Party of Hillsborough County, FL a PERSONAL PLEA as the 2018 LPHC Chairperson. Although we have been growing steadily since 2014 we are hitting a tipping point where the limited resources we have been working with have run out and we have been pulling from the same 5 individuals to maintain our party. This is NOT LIBERTARIAN in nature. We need to all participate in whichever way we can.
If YOU can contribute financially - PLEASE do so. We have current bills that are due and I really do not want to have to beg of these same 5 people. If everyone does as little as $3/mo or $36/year - we cannot only cover our current expenses but continue to grow and make a difference here locally. Current Bills due include Postage Box for next year $105. Website/apps/ emails for next year $198, postage for current postcards to mail $0.35 * 1165 local Libertarians (we have no email or ph # for).
DONATING IS EASY Click HERE to get to lphc.live/donate Plus if you can donate $36 we will send you a KEWL Hillsborough Libertarian bumper sticker.
