Dr. Jim Lark will be visiting Austin to meet with Libertarians and help kick off Pat and Robert's Excellent Adventure.
Dr. Lark is a professor at the University of Virginia, and a long-time campus Libertarian organizer. He is a former national Chair of the Libertarian Party and current board member of the Libertarian National Committee, the Advocates for Self-Government, and the International Society for Individual Liberty.
Robert and Pat will travel the length and the breadth of Texas this fall season promoting the Libertarian Party, meeting with our county affiliates, and recruiting candidates. From Beaumont to El Paso and Amarillo to Brownsville, and everywhere in between, the amazing road trip will last three months from September to November.
Along the way, we will help candidates and county parties organize their efforts and become more efficient. Robert will present his “18 Steps to Win a Local Election”. Pat will report on the state of the Libertarian Party in Texas.
Our goal is to recruit at least 200 candidates, including a candidate for every seat in the state legislature. We are working on a united message and theme for 2010 that we will unveil along the tour.
