The Libertarian Party of North Carolina passed another milestone in August. For the first time, the party nominated a full slate of Presidential Electors, 15 electors, 15 first alternates and 15 Second alternates. "If we are successful and carry the day Nov. 8, they will meet in Raleigh Dec. 15 to cast their votes for Gary Johnson for President of the United States and Bill Weld for Vice President of the United States," said LPNC Chair Brian Irving. "Thanks to Brad Hessel and Ralph Lake for recruiting all these nominees."
And at their August meeting, the LPNC Executive Committee continued breaking new ground by appointing Clement Erhard of Greensboro as General Counsel. Clement will work pro bono. Clement has worked for the Consumer Products Safety Division and currently is general counsel for Markets America (Shop.com) headquartered in Greensboro. Check out his LinkedIn profile.
The EC also elected Matthew Clements, co-chair of the Durham-Orange LP, to fill a vacant at-large position.
