State Board meeting May 13, at Noon, Stewarts Brewing in Bear DE
- Hi all,
the LPDE State Board meeting for May will be on 5/12 at Stewarts
Brewing Company (location of the convention), in Bear, at 12:00 Noon.
All are welcome to attend, county chairs and other state
board members should plan to attend.
From I95, Take Route 1 South near Christiana Mall, Exit at Route 40
West, bear Right into Governor's Square shopping Center, Stewarts is
on the right side of the shopping center as you face it, near the
From South Delaware, Take Route 1 North to Route 40 West, see above.
On the agenda:
Storage: party items, literature, and the BOOTH
the Phone: I believe we are disconnected and bill free! I believe we
need to have a means of telecommunication, so we need to follow up on
getting a cell phone, prepaid or plan, or other phone?
Candidates: We are a political party, we need candidates!!!!I'll be
speaking with Bill Morris on this topic today. But bear in mind, we
have a message, which we can continue to refine. And, we have an
opportunity....THROW THE BUMS OUT....is the mindset of Delaware
voters. We welcome all Libertarians that will step up to the plate as
candidates (pretty much) but especially welcome is anyone in a
district that will lack competition for the incumbent. Yeah,
incumbents have gerrymandered the districts to eliminate major
competition, but they didn't count on us! Haven't run before....no
biggie, you can take it light, or big time, but see me or email me!
Candidates: State, National, county councils, municipal elections,
school boards, and other non-partisan positions. Take one, take all,
we want Libertarian candidates on the ballot, and who hopefully will
present (market) to voters Libertarian ideas. Focus! A candidate
needs to only present 3 or less ideas....3 campaign themes max, think
3 reasons you are running!
Events: We need to be present in the minds of Delawareans to be even
a limitedly viable party. We need repetition. We need numbers. We
need to be there. We must show our faces. So Cheers to less meetings
and more face time. Unless our meetings become an event.
Publicity: Expose your friends to ideas....I know you discuss/argue
with your friends, but show them things like DownsizeDC.org and Free
Talk Live, not to mention the Mises Institute or good ole standby's
like the Cato Institute or Reason magazine. Oh, and of course, John
Stossel of 20/20. And watch, listen, learn, and share it with people,
hell, I bug my vendors with this stuff sometimes.
Publicity 2: Write in to your favorite paper or publication. Call
your talk show hosts. Leave your Lp News in a public place. Leave
copies of the Delaware Liberty Liner at the local library (see me
Publicity 3: We have an activism project on Medical Marijuana. We'd
like people to get involved. Wear a Libertarian shirt or pin while
you are out there. Oh, we have the trash pick-ups too, Namaans Road
and Churchmans I think.
Repetition: We need it. Its the key to good marketing. We need it.
Its the key to good marketing. We need it.....
Politics: Marketing is the key to success. The best idea in the
world won't do it without great marketing. Bad ideas and good
marketing will beat a great idea without marketing every time.
Marketing is the key to success.
Location: Next board meeting....Stewarts or your suggestion. Need
not serve alcohol. WiFi a plus!
Other orders of Business: You bring them. What you want to talk
about, eh? More importantly, what do you want to do? What do you
want to see? Bring it on!
More the Merrier (I hope).
