Monthly MLP meeting

People start arriving at 7:00.  The meeting will start as close to that as possible. 

This month we will host a joint nominating convention for Brooklyn and Manhattan in order to choose congressional candidates. We will also have members of our statewide ticket, including gubernatorial candidate Michael McDermott, speaking and answering your questions.

Due to a large amount of business being conducted at this meeting, please arrive as close to 7:00 as possible. We want to give all candidates time to speak and you a chance to vote.

    I arrived "fashionably late," and was surprised to see a large turnout. Indeed, Mark Axinn later estimated "almost 40 people in total attendance” and that “the hat” collected $85.00 (Thanks to all.) He also considered the meeting "superb."

    I saw many new faces and I was glad to see Chris Clark, the MLP's Director of Membership, have these people sign in, using the new "Sign-In Sheet," that MLP member, James Mantione, graciously created. The Brooklyn LP endorsed Richard Bell as its candidate for Congress, District 11, despite his languid presentation (Richard, you need more zest). But Nick Di Iorio, got neither the MLP's nor the BKLP's endorsement for the 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Brooklyn, Manhattan AND Queens. I think his foreign policy turned off several voters. (I later learned that he can still run as the LP candidate since the Queens County LP had endorsed him, and a unanimous endorsement is not required.)

    MY REVIEW, Part 2

    When Mark Axinn asked attendees to help with petitioning, I also asked them to sign up for the "LPNY's Clearinghouse for Petitioners," a website that will help coordinate the petitioning drive:

    Mike McDermott, the LP's gubernatorial candidate, gave the keynote speech, with his electrifying presentation about his campaign strategy. During the Q&A, I asked him if he will ask people to vote for him because he needs at least 50,000 votes. He said "no," and that he's playing to win and that he wouldn't mind if he "loses" by getting 5 million votes. I thought that was very heartening.

    In all, it was an interesting and entertaining evening. If you didn't attend, you missed a good one. And lest I forget, I ordered mushroom Perogies with sauerkraut, fried, a delicious Eastern European dish that Luba, our hardworking server, as usual, brought to me in a timely matter despite her much larger than usual workload.

    Thanks for reading.

    Although I couldn't attend (covered with poison ivy) I'm giving it a 5 star review because of the feedback I have received. We had several candidates speak followed by Q & A.
    One of the groups officers called the meeting "superb".

    Bob--Thanks for coming last night. Usually our visitors don't have to travel 2,000 miles like you did!

    There will be plenty of opportunities for Q & A with the candidates. You are also welcome to submit questions ahead of time, either through this LP meetup page or directly to me.

    If you are a Libertarian and you would like to get a better feel for the people who are running for elected positions on the Libertarian ticket then the Manhattan chapter of the NY Libertarian party’s meeting tomorrow should be a must to attend.
    Tomorrow’s MLP meeting’s speakers will start with Richard Bell, who is seeking the Bk LP endorsement for US congress in district 11 (Staten Island and Brooklyn). Then a couple of statewide candidates will speak, notably Michael McDermott who is running for New York Governor. To finish off, Nick Diiorio, who is also seeking the LPs endorsement will speak. He is running for US Congress in the 12th district, which encompasses most of the East Side of Manhattan along with portions of Brooklyn and Queens. So please, come out and meet some Libertarians who are laying it on the line and going for it.
