The Hendricks County Flyer stopped by the local LP county convention to get the perspective of this year’s elections.
In an election when many claim they’ll be voting for the least annoying candidate, the Libertarian party is looking to pick up some new voters.
Representing the Libertarian party might seem like a futile endeavor, but disconnect on a national level with both of the major parties means the Libertarian party is growing — albeit slowly.
The Libertarian Party of Hendricks County recently held its county convention at BJ’s restaurant in Avon.
Jeff Murray, local party chairman and candidate for Indiana State Representative District 40, hosted and organized the meeting, with the help of the rest of the board.
“The meeting went better than we could have ever imagined,” Murray said. “We had about 20 people RSVP, and we ended up having closer to 35 people actually attend. We discussed our regular county business, and the direction in which we would like to see Hendricks County Libertarian Party move. We selected our delegates to represent us at the State LP convention April 22-24. We also approved our county bylaws. We had candidates from all over the state in attendance, including Rex Bell, candidate for governor; Kevin Rogers, a candidate for state senate District 24; Shane Zollner, candidate for state senate District 32; and myself, Jeff Murray, for state rep. District 40.”
