During the closing day of the Libertarian Party Convention in St. Louis, MO, Kevin Knedler, Chair of the Executive Committee of the Libertarian Party of Ohio, was elected to the Libertarian National Committee as an At-Large member.  Kevin will now assist in shaping the Libertarian Party for the next two years.

“Well, I am still in awe at what occurred with the LNC at-large vote. 14 candidates were running for 5 slots. It was a “who’s who” list of doctors, a judge, a millionaire, long-time libertarians, a past chair, former candidates for LNC Chair, and 3 sitting incumbents. At times, I felt like the “David vs many Goliaths”.  This was the first time I had ever run for anything beyond the LPO (Libertarian Party of Ohio). And when the votes came in, I made it onto the LNC–voted in by my peers in the audience,” Knedler said.

The Ohio delegation at the convention was the largest they have ever seated, and was one of the largest state delegations at the convention.  The Libertarian Party Convention is held every two years, as opposed to other political parties that hold conventions every four years.

The Libertarian Party of Ohio is the third largest political party in Ohio, and the only one dedicated to the principles of smaller, limited government, lower taxes, and more personal liberty for the residents of the State of Ohio.  The Libertarian Party of Ohio has the same vision as the Libertarian Party, which is “for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.” For more information, visit http://www.lpo.org.
