State Committee Meeting Agenda
The Missouri Libertarian Party 2010 State Convention will be held at the Truman Hotel and Conference Center in Jefferson City, MO Saturday March 6th.
The convention focus is on building relationships with other liberty minded organizations and 2010 Libertarian candidates. The Missouri LP State Committee will meet in the afternoon to elect National LP Convention delegates, amend the platform and bylaws, and elect the Executive Committee.
In these tough economic times the Missouri Libertarian Party has worked hard to keep expenses for the convention down so more Missouri Libertarians can attend. This will be a one day event allowing many to attend without having the expense of a hotel room. The cost is only $40.00 which includes lunch. $20.00 for students.
This year there will be a banquet dinner in the evening for the award presentations with live entertainment. The banquet dinner is $50.
Convention registration with banquet dinner is $80.00 if purchased before March 1st.
If you would rather pay at the door, please RSVP to the Missouri Libertarian Party via e-mail to: email@example.com. Include the name and addresses of each person attending and the convention package you will be purchasing.
Dave Roland - Show-Me Institute
Dave Roland came to the Show-Me Institute after three years in the nation's capital as an attorney with the Institute for Justice, where he litigated school choice, economic liberty, and property rights cases in state and federal courts. Dave earned undergraduate degrees in political science and Biblical studies at Abilene (TX) Christian University before studying law and religion at Vanderbilt University, where he received his M.T.S. and his law degree in 2004. While attending Vanderbilt, Dave wrote a series of essays for the Freedom Forum's First Amendment Center about the First Amendment and public education, and he clerked for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberties in Washington, D.C. He has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, presented expert testimony about school choice and eminent domain before several state legislatures, and his report "School Choice and the North Carolina Constitution" was published in 2006.
Since joining SMI, Dave has travelled widely in the state of Missouri, speaking to elected officials, Federalist Society chapters, and community groups about education, property rights, constitutional protections for liberty, and the American Founders' conception of virtue. His commentary has been published in several of the state's largest newspapers and he has been a guest on radio shows in St. Louis and Columbia. Dave and his wife, Jenifer (who is SMI's Director of Publications), recently published a case study, "All Caught Up: How Tax Policy May Have Allowed Tennessee to Outgrow Missouri".
Catherine Bleish, Executive Director of the Liberty Restoration Project
Catherine Bleish is the Executive Director of the Liberty Restoration Project and a member of the Ladies of Liberty Alliance. She is twenty five years old and a new activist to the cause, having been motivated by the presidential campaign of Ron Paul. But once she made up her mind to fight for liberty, she has been a human dynamo, co-founding the Liberty Restoration Project; serving as the Kansas City area Grassroots leader for the Ron Paul Campaign, serving as a delegate to the Republican National Convention, organizing "End The Fed" rallies, organizing grassroots training sessions, lobbying in state legislatures, fighting the state of Missouri's MIAC report, regularly speaking at Tea Parties, and taking the liberty message to the streets and to the air ways, speaking, advocating, and organizing for the cause of liberty. Catherine Bleish represents the new young force of activists who are ready to carry liberty's torch into the future. Her most recent project is Called Operation Defuse, a grassroots partnership between the Liberty Restoration Projectand Texans for Accountable Government, educating the liberty movement on the existence and dangers of fusion centers while arming them with the strategies and tools to ensure a return to Constitutional Government through local direct action.
