State party endorses Roscoe

Fellow Libertarians,

The Libertarian Party of California Executive Committee considered by e-mail ballot whether to endorse one or more of the three Libertarian candidates running for California Governor in the October 7, 2003 Statewide Special Election.

The first motion considered Ned Roscoe. The second motion considered Jack Hickey. No motion was presented to endorse Ken Hamidi, the only other registered Libertarian in the race. Ken Hamidi doesn t consider himself to be a Libertarian, though he is registered as one.

Ned Roscoe received 13 votes in favor, 0 votes in opposition and 1 abstention. One voting member did not cast a ballot.

Jack Hickey received 1 vote in favor, 4 votes in opposition and 8 abstentions. Two voting members did not cast ballots.

To earn our party s endorsement, Bylaw 9, Section 7 of the Libertarian Party of California Bylaws requires 10 votes in the affirmative of the 15-member board.

Accordingly, Ned Roscoe is the Libertarian Party of California endorsed candidate for California Governor for the October 7, 2003 Statewide Special Election.
