Dear Friends of Liberty,
Time flies when you’re having fun! It’s been only three weeks since I was elected the new Chair of the Libertarian Party of Arkansas, and it’s been interesting already.
Writing to you today, I have good news, bad news, and some proposed plans.
The good news is this: We have completed our petition campaign for ballot access in 2016 and turned our signatures in to the Secretary of State’s Office on June 2. We will receive notification of our “new” political party status soon.
But here’s the bad news: The Arkansas General Assembly passed legislation during the recent special session that moves the primary election date forward from May to March. Because the filing dates for Libertarian candidates have been tied to party filing dates (Act 1356, 2013), and the filing dates have been moved back to the first week in November, we must choose our candidates for 2016 by Halloween of this year. Trick or treat!
We’re looking at all possibilities at this point, but we must plan on the calendar before us – we have only four months to recruit our candidates!
Other ongoing activities are communications and grass-roots organizing:
