FW: Almost final list of candidates for 2006

Most of the data is in, and it looks like we will have 66 Libertarian
candidates for the 2006 election. The good news is that we have some
excellent candidates, including 12 women. The bad news is that we have so
few candidates; in fact, the lowest number in 20 years. 113 people had
agreed to run, so there was quite a large drop-off. Many of the candidates
gave it their best shot, but still came up short. Others felt it was a
better use of time to rearrange their sock drawers instead of going out to
collect signatures. For the candidates who got on the ballot,
congratulations and I wish you the best of luck in your campaigns. Attached
is what I think will be the final list of candidates, pending the final
certification from the Secretary of State.

For liberty,
Ted Brown
Candidate Recruitment Chair
Libertarian Party of California
