Recent Happening in the Boulder County Party
Welcome to the new LPBC website, it has been a long time coming but it is finally here. The website is not all though, there has been lots of activity as the LPBC has decided to come out of stasis mode and resume our stand against those who would take our freedom.
Bo Shaffer Speaks
at Liberty Fest
Liberty Fest was hosted in July by Bo Shaffer, one of Boulder County’s foremost activists. There was food, music and of course, lively political discussion. The speakers included a sizable group of Libertarian candidates running for office in the November election as well as a few Republican and Democratic candidates. Speeches were given by:
- Bo Shaffer, Libertarian, Candidate for State Representative, District 12
- Eva Kosinski, Libertarian, Candidate for Boulder County Commissioner District 3
- Jaimes Brown, Libertarian, Candidate for Governor of Colorado
- Curtis Harris, Libertarian, Candidate for U.S. Representative
- And many more Libertarian Candidates and Activists.
Afterwards there was live music by local band “Fire in the Asylum” as the attendees socialized and enjoyed the great summer weather. The LPBC would like to thank Bo and the others involved in making this event a reality, it goes to show that the Liberty movement is alive and well in Boulder County.
In other news; the LPBC has elected a new board for the 2010-11 season. The people elected:
- Chair: Ralph Shnelvar
- Treasurer: Diane Dunn
- Secretary: Ron Thomas
- Publicity: Earl Allen
- Campaigns: Dan Ong
- Outreach: Dan Kuntz
- Membership: Quentin McKenna
- Newsletter: Eva Kosinski
In addition, there are several proposed changes to the LPBC bylaws. By provisions in the bylaws, changes to the bylaws require the board to approve putting for the suggested changes, publish the changes so the membership has a chance to see them, the vote on adopting the changes at the following board meeting (which the membership may attend, if desired, and vote on the changes).
These proposals were approved at the Annual Meeting on July 26. This constitutes publishing the proposals. They will be voted on for adoption at the next board meeting. That meeting has not yet been scheduled but will be announced soon. The full test of the current LPBC bylaws can be found here. There are three suggested changes:
- Clarification of Term Dates for Officers of the Board
- Change of the LPBC Registered Address
- Reconcile Wording regarding Regular Meetings
These changes are mostly cleanup and clarification, there are no substantive changes. The Clarification of Term Dates is mainly to allow flexibility in the scheduling of the annual meeting. It does not remove the requirement to publicize the scheduling of that meeting well in advance. It simply removes the requirement that the annual meeting must be in July. The Change of Registered Address is mainly to remove the hard-coding of the LPBC’s mailing address from the bylaws, so that future changes to the mailing address do not require a bylaw change. The Reconcile Wording Regarding Regular Meetings is to complete and clarify a change made some time ago. The requirement for regular meetings was changed from monthly to quarterly, but there are still places where the bylaws refer to monthly meetings. This change will make the bylaws consistent in this area.
