The Libertarian Party of Michigan (LPM) is seeking a member of the party to fill a vacancy on the Libertarian Executive Committee (LEC). Second congressional district Representative Patti Malowney submitted her resignation last month.

Per the LPM bylaws, we are asking members of the LPM that reside within the second district to apply for the vacancy. The LEC will vote on a replacement at our November 30 meeting. That person shall serve until the next state convention on March 14, 2020 at Grand Valley State University. At that convention delegates who live in district two will chose a permanent representative.

If you are a member of the LPM, live in the second 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 28, 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.

The Second District

The second district is currently represented by Republican Bill Huizenga and covers the central western part of the Lower Peninsula. It includes the counties of Lake, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, Ottowa, the southern half of Mason, part of Kent (including the cities of Walker, Wyoming, Grandville, and Kentwood), and part of Allegan (city of Holland).

Update: Mary Buzuma has filled this position.
