Since I don’t have access to either the forums or the Google Drive used for such reports, I’m posting my report here:
Region 7 of the Libertarian Party of Florida consists of three counties, Volusia, Flagler, and Putnam. There is an organized and recognized affiliate of the party in Volusia County.
As of the last voter list downloaded, there are 942 registered voters registered as members of the Libertarian Party of Florida. The monthly meeting of the LPVC was rescheduled to coincide with the LPVC Annual Convention, which is scheduled for January 27 at noon at the Mellow Mushroom in Port Orange. An open invitation has been issued by the LPVC Executive Committee for any and all LPF EC members to attend the meeting and to share in the food afterward.
The county convention has been advertised on FaceBook by the LPVC. In addition, several members have sent advertised the convention using different means. Jonathan Loesche purchased a FaceBook advertisement that will run for two weeks. Joe Hannoush (I think) sent out post cards to all those who changed party affiliation to libertarian during the last year. J Mark Barfield sent out cards to registered libertarians in the City of Deltona. I sent out cards to registered libertarians in State House District 26 who registered to vote prior to January 1, 2017. The following are the cards that I sent. (I don’t have copies of the other cards that were sent.) I included information about the state convention next month.
The LPVC has been attempting to gain access to its post office box, which is owned by Paul Stanton, the old Region 7 Representative. At this point they have given up and are investigating getting their own post office box.
Additionally there has been discussion about “adopting” a road segment in order to increase the profile of the county affiliate.
Both of the two State House Candidates are actively gathering petition signatures.
Flagler County currently has 190 registered libertarian voters. I have been unable to access the Flagler County Libertarians FaceBook page. I’ve contacted prior regional representatives, who have stated that they didn’t have access, either. I’ve messaged the page and received no response. I would prefer not to create a new FaceBook page. The existence of two pages would confuse the target audience. I’m still attempting to gain access to the page. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Putnam County currently has 82 registered libertarian voters. With the assistance of Alison Foxall and the Communications Committee, I’ve gained access to the Putnam County Libertarians FaceBook page. Since gaining access, I’ve made several posts to the page, with several of them promoted. The page has several new likes, with likes made on several of the posts.
