Nick and I briefly discussed the possibility of holding an event, or establishing a process, for recommending candidates. The LPSF has done this sporadically in the past. Per state LP bylaws we can't formally endorse non-Libertarian candidates, but short of such formal endorsements we've sometimes recommended votes for some candidates we judged to be significantly better (or in some cases perhaps "less bad" would be more accurate!) than their opponent(s).
Below is an announcement from the local Young Democrats about their endorsement event on Feb. 21. I'll probably plan to attend, and thought others might also be interested, as it'll be a good opportunity to hear what the candidates are telling a Democrat group, and to see how another group does endorsements. Not sure I want to post a Democrat event as a Meetup or put it on the website calendar though...
When we haven't had a process for vetting candidates, sometimes we've heard from them on an ad hoc basis. Apparently one mayoral candidate spoke to Nick about his interest in appearing before us. That's always an option, however I think it would be preferable to have a fair, organized process of inviting and hearing from everyone.
Love & Liberty,
