Join us in Clemmons the weekend of March 10-12 for the 2023 LPNC Convention to Celebrate Local! Everyone wants to live their own life their own way, for their own needs, and according to their own values. Join us with the Libertarian Party of North Carolina, the only political party that leaves your life choices where they belong, with you!

We'll be meeting at the Village Inn Hotel and Event Center for a weekend of business, enlightening speakers, and fun! Tickets include all convention activities, plus a catered Gala on Saturday. We will also have a Friday evening reception from 7pm-11pm.

Bylaws and Rules Committee Report

The Bylaws and Rules Committee has completed its final report, available hereThe committee will hold a final open forum to hear comments and answer questions about our recommendations report on Friday, February 24, at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Consider taking this poll as well.

Debate on this report will be one of the two major business items of the Convention. The other is the election of a new Executive Committee.

While we don’t expect the Convention to have time to consider all recommendations, let alone adopt them, the committee believes all these recommendations will be good for the party. We urge all LPNC members, particularly those attending the Convention, to read the report and come prepared to offer meaningful suggestions on how to improve them.

As the keeper of the public purse, Treasurer Folwell is responsible for the more than $111 billion state pension fund that provides retirement benefits for more than 950,000 teachers, law enforcement officers and other public workers. Under Folwell's leadership the pension plan was rated among the top five highest-funded in the country and won accolades for proactive management, efficiency and funding discipline. In 2021, the state's coveted AAA bond rating was reaffirmed by every major rating agency, making North Carolina one of only 13 states in the country to hold that distinction. Treasurer Folwell also oversees the State Health Plan, which provides medical and pharmaceutical benefits to more than 750,000 current and retired public employees and is the largest purchaser of health care in North Carolina.

He brought his problem-solving skills to the North Carolina General Assembly in 2004, where he served four terms in the House of Representatives including one term as Speaker Pro Tempore.

Married for over 30 years, he and his wife Synthia have three children and live in Winston-Salem.
