Pinellas Libertarians met with new St Pete mayor Bill Foster, as part of effort meeting with many officials, candidates, and staff to let them be aware of Lib sites such as CATO and RPPI and issues of interest to Pinellas Libertarians. Our agenda: tax review, community policing, opportunities on advisory boards where Libs can help such as Sister City boards.
We also handed out quizzes, and will continue until we get one to every official. Besides the new Mayor of St Pete, we met with Quiz-Libertarian friendly Kathleen Ford who worked in past with Libertarians on common issues. LPPC members and worked on campaigns of both those elected and not such as Lib-friendly St. Pete Council 8 hopeful Len Schmiege (about 30% of the vote) on his first try who has worked with Libs on voter integrity and petition issues. Libertarians also met with State Rep Kriseman and also continue to alert leaders on issues of e.g. protecting the homeless. This is part of our push with the Libertarian Club to help get public officials in all parties aware of Libertarian voluntary approaches and resource links such as RPPI, ISIL and Heartland; we invite them to take the QUIZ and discover our work locally, and learn from them what they believe upcoming problems and opportunities might be.
