Mark and Lpsf Activists.
Rich Newell, ourr new vice chair called and asked for us to plan a fundraiser for ourselves and the California party and suggested May 22. I thought about it for a few days , and here are some questions that may help to form the nexus of a plan...
but before I get to that, thank you Mark Johnson of the executive committee for offering to help plan and recruit for a fundraiser.
Rich Newell has suggested May 22 is that too soon, or is it best to go with that ddate to help the state party leadership to get on the ground running?
Is an attractive venue a good idea?
How about 22 Hawthorne Lane?
Should this be pay your own way" or a fixed price?
If a fixed price,...
Would $100 per person be appropriate?
if $100 per plate or some other number ids decided,
Should we try to raise money ahead of time to subsidize activists who otherwise could not atttend?
Could high profile or high dollar attendees be invited to form an informal friends of Liberty Committee?
On a related topic, Dems and Repubs have powerful coalition groups that meet and share ideas, and contacts. Many of us in the libertarian party know and are close with free thinking folks in other organizations that have libertarian leanings but are not associated with the party for idealogical , legal or habitual reasons.
We need to get together with these folks , share contacts and ideas on a personal basis, and generate unified and powerful projects.
Just off the top of my head, folks from the independant institute, santa clara university, the other local bay area libs, liberty leaning Republicans and democrsts, the tax payer union folks, Ed Jew and some of his supporters, the war and law folks, come to mind.
Would the name Bay Liberty United We Stand coalition , be a good working name.
Should forming the coalition be done in conjunction with this fundraiser or seperate.?
Should we give a silver eagle to all attendees as a reward for attending?
Your thoughts on these questions would be greatly appreciated as soon as possible,especially the question about the date.
LPSF activists who would like to participate in the planning , inviting and execution of a joint State Local fundraiser, please give your input.
Please answer the questions in succint fashion first and then offer succint suggestions and ideas.
We can make this happen and be a big success for SF and CA liberty and the beginning of much success to come.
Lets do this.
