Dear California Freedom Subscriber:

We’ve suspended publication of our state Party’s newsletter, California Freedom, until we implement more cost effective arrangements for its publication.

The Party’s Executive Committee has authorized research into changing our newsletter so that it remains a high-quality publication with much lower publication costs.

Until we are ready to resume publication, subscribers with balances on their annual subscription may contact the state Party’s office to request a pro-rated refund, or to donate the balance of your subscription to the Libertarian Party of California. Contact Beau Cain at or call toll-free at 877-884-1776.

We regret the inconvenience to you, our faithful subscribers, especially at a time when our Party is working hard to take great advantage of the current political climate. We will notify you of our new news publication as soon as it is ready to be implemented.

In the meantime, we invite you to subscribe to our free online event announcement service, which will send notices and reminders of upcoming California LP events only a few times each month. You can subscribe to this e-mail announcement service in the lower left corner of our Party’s home page, or by clicking this link.

Dear Francoise and All,

I have been mulling over this situation since I received Beau's communication, but have not yet decided what to do about my own dues.

I also gave some thought about 1) the need to revise the LPSF membership application as soon as possible, 2) what to do, if anything about the folks we at LPSF told they would be getting the newspaper.
As I recall, Ron posted the application, and maybe he would find it in his heart to revise it yet again. Most of the members for whom I received checks paid $25, so no sweat there. I would suggest that we wait if/until those who paid full price mention something to LPSF, and then we direct them to LPCA for a refund.



  I did not receive the message about publication of the newsletter
being suspended to which Francoise has responded below, but please
send my pro-rated refund to the LPSF along with hers (2215-R Market
Street, PMB 170, San Francisco, CA, 94114). Perhaps you'll be able to
save some postage and checks by combining several pro-rated balances
of LPSF members and mailing them together.

  I'm sorry to hear this news -- the California LP newsletter under
Thomas Sipos' editorship has been a bright spot in the party, an
important way to show members something concrete for their dues and
remind them that the party does still put out some strongly
libertarian publications (sadly, LP News has been weak on ideology in
recent years). I encourage the LPC ExCom (members of which are being
cc'd) to keep publishing California Freedom while research for cost-
saving arrangements is conducted, so as not to interrupt continuity.
If there is still an item in the budget for the ExCom to cover meeting
room space, I suggest transferring that money to help cover the
newsletter, and adopting a standing resolution to only hold ExCom
meetings in spaces that do not have a cost associated with them.

Love & Liberty,
