Yes! My member number is 0000852. (Joined in 1974). I ran for office twice on the LP line (1998 for 3rd A.D. and 1999 for 3rd L.D.). Delegate at several LP national conventions.
Yes. Former Member-At-Large on State Committee.
Yes. I first signed this in the 1960s (before there WAS an LP!), when it was proposed by John Hospers; I signed again when it became the mandatory LP certification; and I have signed it many times since then (e.g. when I became an LP candidate).
Charter member Suffolk County LP (1974); Libertarian Party member #000852; "libertarian" since 1962 ("Students of Objectivism" with Prof. John Hospers); also studied with Peikoff, Rothbard, Branden, & Ayn Rand (at "Nathaniel Branden Institute").
Fortunately, (but surprising to some,) the meeting turned out well. Opposing points were heard (with minimal contention), and consensus was reached on a small set of immediate changes. Some issues were deferred for future revisions. Too bad the preceding email discussion was not as fruitful!
