The outcome of the 2015 LPNC Annual Convention this weekend was a clear and overwhelming decision by the attendees to “Resolve for Liberty in 2015.”
Libertarian Party chair Nicholas Sarwark, our keynote speaker, played hooky from the proceedings on Sunday to sojourn into downtown Raleigh for a 40-minute appearance on C-SPAN. We delayed reconvening the convention to watch the last 15 minutes of the show on the big screen in the meeting room.
The result was a grand-slam, out-of-the-ballpark home run. Nick gave great responses to some pointed questions from listeners.
The inspirational combination of that interview, Nick's address to the convention Saturday afternoon, and the dynamic presentation of our banquet speaker, political analyst John Davis, was palpable.
Nearly everyone present spontaneously upped their financial pledge and several folks who had not planned to do so were inspired to run for at-large seats on the executive committee. As a result, for the first time in a long time we have a full-house on the EC.
