The Libertarian Party of Michigan (LPM) is seeking a member of the party to fill a vacancy on the Libertarian Executive Committee (LEC). Fifth congressional district Representative Benjamin Dryke submitted his resignation earlier this month.

Per the LPM bylaws, we are asking members of the LPM that reside within the fifth district to apply for the vacancy. The LEC will vote on a replacement at our November 10th meeting. That person shall serve until the next state convention on March 14th, 2020 at Grand Valley State University. At that convention delegates who live in district five will chose a permanent representative.

If you are a member of the LPM, live in the fifth congressional district, and are interested in this position, please send a short written statement about yourself to LPM Chair Greg Stempfle at chair@michiganlp.org by November 8th, 2019.

The Libertarian Executive Committee

The LEC is the governing board of the LPM and meets about once per month, usually a Sunday afternoon. They hold about half their meetings in physical locations and they hold the rest via zoom video-conference. Physical meetings are also available to attend via video conference.
