The details for our December 6th meetup are finalized. Once again, we will meet at West End Grill starting at 6pm. We will have a room to ourselves, and if it’s anything like last time, we’ll have a full house until about 9pm, but you can stay as late as you want. A few members of our group, who will remain anonymous, shut that place down last time.
Luke used his connections and lined up a speaker for us: Steve Gordon, who will be discussing Electoral College reform. From his Wikipedia entry:
Stephen P. Gordon is a libertarian political consultant with the firm Forward Focus Media and a political activist. He currently writes at The Next Right and The Liberty Papers and serves as the Media Director for the Alabama chapter of the Republican Liberty Caucus.
In addition to his former positions with the national Libertarian Party, Gordon was co-editor of the libertarian news blog Hammer of Truth, owned and edited the website Third Party Watch, he taught campaign management at the Libertarian Leadership School, and is a member of the American Association of Political Consultants.
He was the campaign Communications Director during Michael Badnarik’s run for President of the United States during the 2004 elections. Gordon also managed Hollywood producer Aaron Russo’s campaign for the Libertarian nomination in 2004. He served as Ron Paul’s Alabama Media Coordinator and Bob Barr’s e-Campaign manager during the 2008 presidential elections.
So come on out, get to know the liberty community in North Alabama. The first meet-up had close to twenty people show up, and I’m expecting even more to make it out this time. There will be plenty of opportunity to network, share ideas and plan events and activism. Plus, it’ll be a blast.
